Any store that loaded up with debt in the good years and now has to pay the bills could have problems - be interesting to see how Debenhams and BHS fare next year.

Allied Carpets are on the verge according to the salesman who served me today.

Was also a shame to see Turtles in Croydon going under. 115 years they have been there.

Ebay has shot itself in the foot thinking it can treat it's customers how they like , they have laid off almost 50% of it's staff (that was about 2 months ago ) and could well be on it's way under, according to someone I know who works for them.

You only have to try and sell something or look at the completed listings to see it is ••••ed.




EDIT.
Is play.com not a cheaper hmv / woolies ?

HMV do a internet service cd's are cheaper , but my first order some of the cd's took 2 months to arrive.

The second order some of the dvds took a month to arrrive.

The third order was an item on sale after three weeks of waiting I contacted them 3 times finally they replied and told me they had sold out , but were still advertising the item ,but now at full price . I told them to •••• off and would never use them again.

More a problem of a lack of credit and people now thinking what they are spending instead of just buying what they like. The other problem is illustrated in your post people want things cheap and cheaper in this country which doesn't account for the cost of British wages which is killing employers.

It's comforting to have a clear-headed expert like you around in these troubled times; a Red Adair of recession strategy, if you will. Shame so many companies are in trouble and there is only one Dave Campbell.

Anyone know what was up at Threshers on Limpsfield Road yesterday, by the way? I went round there at seven and there were agitated rozzers all around, a helicopter circling, and so on.
My mother says it is because the local children go there for cigarettes but I am not convinced. Though nothing would surprise me in this crazy police state you have chosen to live in.

To be fair sitting in front of a computer all day imputing 0's and 1's gives you an insight into the commerical realities of the wider business world that many of us just cannot grasp.

The harsh realities of the business world is something you are going to experience and experience in the harshest of all forms, in 2009.

At least you will have Jesus.

I'm advised that If you have any Debenhams vouchers it would be sensible to cash them in quickly.

Most of my kids' clothes come from Adams until they were about 10 - but that was a few years ago now - they were a bit trendy and good quality but a lot cheaper than brands like osh-gosh etc - I suspect they got caught in the middle between the discount retailers like Primark and the supermarkets and the upmarket stores.

I used to work for the c*ts and i'd deerly love to see them bite the dust but im not sure speculation about Debenhmas is well placed. There shops sell plenty of Tatt but they've been plenty busy enough whenever i pay a visit, the queue in the Bromley store yesterday looked like it was for the x-factor auditions.

You could say Debenhams look caught in a no-mans land against cheaper competition like Primark and against more up market stores like John Lewis. However Debenhams have franchised and concessioned much of their buisness out which reduces their risk and i'll be amazed if they go.
