B&Q to close five stores in Northern Ireland
Not to worry, Tesco is building a big store on the Buncrana Road site (in Londonderry). Oh no, that's right. Mark H Durkan blocked it.
Great stores while the growth lasted.
They close all the B&Q stores, and then Screwfix come along and open new stores on the same sites.
Any wonder. They have become too expensive and complacent. They just kept thinking they could milk us forever. Too greedy is the word for them.
Screwfix is much better.
Can't believe the powers we voted in didn't fight for these people's jobs. Love this store. Total shame it is closing - and a bigger shame for all those losing their jobs.
Sign of the times.
Stormont talks - how can you do it if you don't B&Q it?
Most B&Qs are being rebranded to Screwfix. And given B&Q own both, it won't make much difference.
I thought the place was prospering. Er, so the defunct politicians keep telling us.
Great. Big closing down sales to look forward to.
Drove down the Cregagh Road (in Belfast) and past the old Sirocco works. Shuttered shops and a wasteland. Sad and desperate.
I don't like to see news about that.
