I would be distressed if Robert Dyas was in trouble. There's definitely a need for that sort of shop in the high street.

Besides, where else could I get my J.M.L. fix?

They have a comparative cost advantage over their rivals.
They'll be last man left standing.

i would love it if it was jd sports, absolutely love it.
purely for all the misery it inflicted on me working part time in bromley few years ago. glad to see that building has now been torn down! used to send a shudder down me.

unfortunately i can't imagine they have any problems, as they pretty much own half of the trainer selling / chav fashion shops out there, if my memory is correct.

so i'm gonna go for robert dyas, which seems to have been mentioned on here a lot, as i have no idea what the hell it sells / is. therefore it must be rubbish.

wh smith is also a good shout. i can't think what you'd ever go in there for apart from the odd bit of stationary. i guess this is probably a step up from pick n mix from woolies, but still.

That's part of DSG - Curries/Dixons etc. Yes, they do have a few problems.

JJB Sports is also in the shit - must be odds on to go bust in the new year.

Agreed (apart from the extraneous full stops).

Probably lease but your second sentence is more likely to be correct.

It is correct & was why I posted that they had a CA.
Leases are the largest fixed cost & when trading i down they cause retailers to fail. The next quarter day is I think Tuesday, be interesting to see who calls in administrators then - Christmas sales made & 3 months rents to pay.
Non food retailers make ca. 40% of their profits in 6 or so weeks before Christmas
