Councillor Susan Hinchcliffe, Bradford Council executive member for employment, skills and culture, said Moss Bros was closing because of an issue about the rent.

“Retailers are saying rents are high in these austere times,” she said.

Familiar story - squeeze from internet, recession, rents, business rates, parking charges, red tape, regulation etc...

Superdrug has just closed in my town center. Something afoot?

We've discussed Superdrug before and they were reported to be owned by a massive conglomerate and safe in almost all circumstances.

At one time, Superdrug was the place to go if you wanted cheaper than Boots - and was the only cheapie option. My guess is that online, supermarkets and discounters like Poundland, Home Bargains etc have eaten into their business. They probably still do OK though - judging by the footfall.

And in the Bradford case, there's still a Superdrug within half a click according to the article.

Bloody Hell, Moss Bros, are they still going?

Well I assume when everyone graduates secondary school (high school for an US readers), we all at 16 trot down to Moss and hire a suit for the graduation dinner. Or doesn't the next generation do that anymore?

Yey another empty unit in Bradford. There are already plenty of empty units in the centre, and this is after they demolished a load of it to build a shopping centre - which never materialised. Add in all the permanently empty office space to which they keep adding more... still, my boss says rates/rents are cheap and its centralish for everyone that works for him, so he's staying for now. The whole place is such a dive though.

There are 2 new hotels though added in the past year, what's that about?

You miss off :

Greed, mismanagement, loss of direction, loss of common sense from the councils.
