Not really high street but DHS must be a contender.
Maybe they should have a sale?

I would assume you're not legally allowed to reduce tobacco products, so everyone sells at RRP or a bit above - my local corner shop is a few pence cheaper for all the baccy than the supermarkets, but those are still RRPs.

Price fixing - try to buy an iPod for a different price - apparently Apple say they will not supply anyone they find selling the products cheaper than the RRP.

As others have said Jessops are in trouble, DSG are a mess but unlikely to go under due to their successful international operations.

Boots are privately owned, cash rich and making a killing from drugs so are in no danger at all.

Not sure on the latest on the Baugur crisis. The Icelandic parent company has significant shares in a swathe of UK high street brands including Iceland, House of Fraser, Hamleys, Goldsmiths, Oasis, Karen Millen, Principles, Warehouse etc. The crash of the Icelandic banks has left them in all sorts of trouble. The likes of Philip Green are looking to pick off the most attractive brands in the portfolio. The future of the weaker performing chains is at best uncertain.

And that will be the last of Bromley's decent stores closed to be replaced by Chav centres. Army and Navy and Allders gone, replaced by TK Maxx and Primark. What price Debenhams would be replaced by Matalan ?

[QUOTE=Palace Kebab]Boots are privately owned, cash rich and making a killing from drugs so are in no danger at all.[QUOTE]

Not sure if they are but they have 9 billion worth of debt that has been attempted to be moved @ 90% of its face value

"Regulators have expressed concern over the scale of leverage in many recent deals, fearing that they will leave companies highly vulnerable once the credit cycle turns."

It depends on the retailers debt, and when its due for renewal and with whom. It could get messy for quite a few who have heavy borrowing with fragile lenders. The retailer that has a solid asset base but heavy borrowing and the debt called in where are they goinfg to go to get funds.

DSG are making some nice moves not sure its enough though.

Gotta be one of the travel agents, is there anybody that stil uses them these days? If i can book flights, hotels and even a wedding from the comfort of my laptop then they can't be any reason to give some blonde bint commission for booking your trip abroad.

There's plenty of other shops i'd love to see the back of:

BHS: seller of 100% genuine tat, most of it nylon. If it wasn't for their cafe's and the block of 500,000 oap's purchasing toasted tea cakes in there everyday they'd have bitten the dust long ago.

Zavvi: Went in one of these yesterday and the staff looked even more bored than usual and weren't exactly rushed off their feet. Had posters up for discounts on box sets that read something like was 39.99 Now 39.76. Disgracefull and they deserve to croak it.

Thorntons, once upon a time they sold beautifull fudge and toffee that you'd see being broken in front of you. Now it's just mass produced over-priced sh*te with icing on it.

Past Times: What the f*ck are they all about?

Lush: Smells like your old grannies pants and probably just as bad for you.
