I don't think it's too much of a surprise that Clinton Cards is in the shit considering the prices they charge when you have shops like Card Factory charging a lot less. If they were to pride themselves on great customer service then they might not lose quite so much, but they don't.

To be, or not to be, that is the question:

And by opposing end them? To die, to sleep,
No more; and by a sleep to say we end

Do American Greetings make & sell cards by any chance and is this a nifty quick way to eliminate competition before moving in on the UK card market?

A friend of mine founded Moonpig. He was amazed that Clintons did not come in and make a serious offer in the early days of the business. Still, he isn't complaining now!

Card factory and their inability to transition online killed the business.

Thomas cook probaly mentioned before but their latest statement that alot is hinging on late bookings coming up trumps if their new restructed loans are to be honoured does not inpire confidence.
Also Santander bank uk as an outside bet given the euro crisis and their spanish property exposure.

I ran down my Santander bank a/c this week to just £8 [still think of it in terms of Abbey National). That by the way; but glad I got pension paid into the Post Office and not that bank.
