House of Fraser / Debenhams
« on: August 10, 2018, 10:34:29 AM »
Into administration first thing this morning

By 10am bought by Mike Ashley who already held a 11% stake in the business.

Got to laugh about Ashley's acquisition as just had a Hun tell me that that is House of Fraser blacklisted as far as they're concerned now.

Doubt your typical Hun has ever set foot in one of their stores, far less actually ever purchased anything there :laughing:

That'll be why Benitez didn't get any decent money to spend during the transfer window  ;)

So bought out of administration before being liquidated? Ah well at least they can say with certainty that they are the same shop as before....

I knew someone who married Hugh Fraser's ex wife.

She was one of the lassies on the Tennents Cans.



Do I get a prize for Obscure vaguely related post of the year ?

He'll probably rename it House of Ashley and just fill it to the rafters with shite from Champion and Lonsdale.

Debenhams to shut 50 stores.
Would be a shambles for the Trinity Centre!

Time for councils to look at helping high street stores compete against online shopping, or online sites to be taxed more? Or both?!

Time for counsellors to jump off Union Terrace Bridge.

It's them bastards that just kept on building new shopping centres.
