Next could well be in a bit of trouble, you really need to keep evolving in that kind of market but i feel they've had their day..

It's because there are great swathes of emasculated men, who like to dress in banal, middle of the road clothing, drink Carling and look like Keith Chegwin.

I think Next have even lost that market, hence the massive issue they face!

Dunno if this has cropped up on the Broadmarsh thread, but apparently there's an ancient John Menzies logo on display in its old unit in the shopping centre (on the stairs). Any other examples of weird/obscure retail history out there in Nottingham?
