The High Street Will Be Rows Of Empty Shops

Recommended Posts

Just went onto Empire Directs site and saw this message:

Mark Firmin and Richard Fleming, both of KPMG LLP, were appointed in the High Court as Joint Administrators of Empire Direct Plc on 19 January 2009. The business is unable to trade in administration due to low stock levels and operating losses and accordingly the stores have been closed. The administrators are working hard to assess the position for customers who have made payments and not received goods. We will endeavour to contact these customers over the next few weeks.

Anyone interested in acquiring any part of the business should contact the administrators forthwith.

If you are a customer then please call the helpline on 08714729000. If you are a supplier then please call the helpline on 08714729001. Alternatively you can send an email to orderqueries@empiredirect.co.uk.

I hadn't heard anything on the news, but no doubt I'll have a look in one of their stores to see if they're giving anything away.

As I said in the title, there will be nothing left on the high street, shopping malls, retail parks but empty shops. Society will have two choices unemployment or big bonuses in a public sector job.

some chains are expanding

one of these is opening on Balham High Road, to replace woolies... in the past five years there's been a more or less continuous shift upmarket, with a new M&S simply food, a big waitrose, lots of bars/restaurants, and so on... and now this!
