BHS, a shop I've never visited in my five decades plus on the planet , is suffering.

When Philip Greene unloaded it for £1 some months back the writing was on the wall.....

I wonder who decides whether someone thieving from shops should get a criminal record or a knighthood?

Too blooming right. Nick a £20 pair of trousers from BHS and the law will come down on you like a ton of bricks. Nick £450 million from the BHS pension fund and that's just business.

For years we did not have BHS in Oxford a few years ago they opened one in the old council offices which was in a prime location in the shopping area. I only ever went in it twice once for pair of trousers for my late father then again a year or two ago and found it was rubbish. A short time later it shut down. Looking at what it sold and where it was located I would have thought trade would have been good but obviously not.

Another staring down the barrel...

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-38013806

...is the high street stationers Staples, who have been sold "for a nominal amount" to a what could be asset strippers, with the likely result of closure on the UK high street, 106 stores to shut and 1100 people to lose their jobs.

I presume "a nominal amount" is somewhere around the £1 mark, give or take. To add further salt to the wounds of those facing redundancy, some twat describes this as: "build[ing] a plan for success for the business." Unsure

Just checked everything on the Web, the local one was Office World until they went west. They then morphed into Staples. In both forms they were more or less useless and overpriced. Everything was to much trouble for the staff if you could find one. Why would anyone use them, specialist stuff you buy on line run of the mill stuff you buy from Wilko or someone of that ilk. Just can't see where their market is these days.

I live within striking distance of two Staples stores. One is poorly staffed and there is never anyone on a till. The other is the complete opposite, the staff are always available, very polite, and will do anything to help you; I think that it is down to the individual managers - certainly the manager in the good store is very pro-active.

I wouldn't argue against that. The shops are dire and appear to serve no useful purpose.

Crewe Main PO closed about 18 months ago and moved into W H Smiths in the shopping centre.
Many more English PO's have done the same.

Yes, and they will have to gut the inside of WH Smith in Dunfermline if the Post Office are to move in. The layout and décor is dreadful as it stands.

Re: [Rob North] Who will be the next high street chain to bite the bullet? [In reply to] Can't Post or

All our local Post Offices went years ago and the large one in the local Chavley Centre moved into the Co-op. Since then the Co-op has also let out space to Dorothy Perkins and Brantano while the upper floor which was "sold off" when the Oxford, Swindon and Gloucester merged with the one from Warwickshire to the Anglian Co-op but that is now a Gym, we have two Gyms within 150 yards. The employees in the Post Office are employed by the Co-op and one of the tills in the Co-op is also a Pay Point and does basic Post Office service when the Post Office itself is closed. The Post Office also does various other things from selling insurance to exchanging currency. All the Co-op does is sell a bit of food and loads of booze. What was the Post Office is now a betting shop (we have three in the complex) and a Wine Bar.

W H Smith's have been hosting Post Offices in major centres for a good few years, Cheltenham and Swansea for example, so the model presumably works for them. What does seem customer unfriendly is when they're positioned on the upper floor, though presumably if you make someone who wants to check the weight of a letter walk through the store they might be tempted by overpriced stationery, etc. The Co-op seems to go for smaller places, presumably as part of their overall strategy focussing on largish corner shops.

Re: [bakis] Who will be the next high street chain to bite the bullet? [In reply to] Can't Post or

I have 5 Co-op's within 10 minutes walk of my house. I hate to think how many there are in the city. Other than special offers or reduced items I never buy anything in them as they are so expensive. My most local one which is on the site of one of Oxford's infamous self combusting pubs is near impossible to get served in as the tills are usually unmanned.
