Guy wearing an army style t-shirt trying to get into Tesco using the exit door and telling the security staff "Am no fucking queuing, f**k the lot of you" wtf is wrong with some people, the supermarkets should be allowed to do what the airline's do and black list folk like that from using them

My local supermarket (Sainsburys) is only letting in one adult at a time, I saw someone getting told it was either him or the missus.

I dropped my wife off and took the boy for a walk in the nearby park, am I in line for public execution?

Another question I have is where are people getting their masks? I’ve seen many people wearing them, I assumed they’d be sold out everywhere

Finally got some from Ebay, delivered today. They're fucked though, the elastic thread that wraps round the ear breaks off as soon as you try to fit it, all first four that I tried. Going to have to reinforce them all with sellotape. I suspect most of the ones you see on the street have been nicked from work and passed on.

Even without Covid-19 that was always likely - wife is currently furloughed by them - seems to be the intention that they will do a pre-pack administration - they will bring forward store closures (already planned) and hope to sell on the viable ones.

Yes, our local one (on an already struggling high street) had escaped the next planned round of closures. When (assuming that's a when rather than an if) it does go, it'll be a large hole and no doubt knock on effect for the surrounding businesses. Not somewhere I'm in more than twice a year personally, but hopefully they save what's viable of it.

I found it a really annoying place to shop, with everything hived off into different brand sections. You have to walk around the whole fucking shop to see what pans they've got.

The Falkirk Debenham's is shite (according to pretty much every woman I know) so no surprise if it ends up on the bin-list.

Completely agree about the French. No idea why they get such an easy ride in life.

This what pisses me off the most about conspiracy theorists, inventing nonsense when stuff like this is really happening and needs exposure.

I like French people tbh (not those two obv). The hundred years war was ages ago and it was England's beef, you should go visit it's nice.

Debenham's used to be quite good up to about 10 years ago, now a lot of its clothing ranges are dated, bland and in the same market as Mark's and Spencers. They have not been flexible enough and changed with the times, all they've done is allow themselves to end up in one crisis after another and then reacted by closing shops and still having faith in the old and trusted way to run the shops. What would make them better and stand out from the competition. The one thing they did right was sell online, but still the range is poor and cheaper alternatives can be bought elsewhere.

They could have downsized, looked closely at what they are selling and be more ruthless in selecting their ranges, there are plenty of other designers out there.  Debenhams have shown a complete lack of flexibility and adapt to change. As retail evolution goes they are heading for extinction.

I should be in France right now.

Could have been me (or preferably the wife, she’s up for a random injection now and then).
