despite there never seeming to be anyone in them.
but how many people want to eat frozen yogurt and how much do they eat?
so 127.3 litres
There might be someone in there. I cant see for fuck.
the rubbish ones not the good ones
Looked into this while I was on garden leave. They do about 95% of their sales in the 6 week holiday. Never worked out how/why they manage to stay open the rest of the year.
Always thought they should be like the firework shop on Ashbourne Rd in Derby: opens a week before Halloween, closes the day after Guy Fawkes Night
selling school uniforms and fireworks.
could quite easily set up a business selling seasonal goods only
Who uses a shop to launder things? -
if you're laundering copper coins
Went there in February
Wasn't that busy
a much smaller place than S-o-A. Here's a video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ol_1OLjDf8Q
I went there when it was 27c.
What's that you say? This special blend of erbs will cure my knee injury, make my periods better, make my hair shiny, give me energy AND botcdh up my hayfever?
oooohh CUPING. let's try CUPPING because it sounds rude AND new age. And whil you're at it read my *aura*, click my skeleton back into alignment, and then PUNCTURE ME EVERYWHERE WITH NEEDLES (btw acupuncture did actually work for me.)
Yes, thousands given to Dr & herbs etc over the years. Thousands.
but i used to have pmt so pad that it was diagnosed as pmdd. Couldn't function for one week every month because of depression and anger issues. Back to happy sparky self the second my period arrived, it was the most mental thing ever. I had six months of acupuincture and some herbs in a tea and a few instructions as to lifetsyle that i mostly ignored (apparently I need to keep my feet warm as i lose my heat through my feet. fucking shame as i like bare feet/ tiny sandals) and it's gone. I still get a wee bit irratonal and weepy at that time of the month., bit only a tiny bit and not *every* month. Well worth the money. In fact i am so better that I was allowed back onto hormnonal contraception, whihc they couldn't risk before when I was El Basketo case.
because i was livcing with chintzy at te time and I'd pootle off the hill in greenwich to see my chinese doctor and then go and meet her in the pub next to it after to undo all of the good work.
NO MR CHONG I AM NOT DRINKING ANY MORE, hahahaha.
I wasn't throwing myself off hills at that point, we'd already got past that point by the time I sought help.
I've defo experienced some of those symptoms before
Good that it got sorted
must only be a matter of time before they sack off their high street shops and stick to transport hubs.
.....so I don't think so.
or there goes the chance to buy Wire or Sight and Sound anywhere outside a big city.
Never people. I'm not sure they have more than two members of staff when I've been in there.
always a few people in there. probably doesn't need to be quite as big as it is though.
only ever open at night, crap selection of everything. they look properly mystified if you try to buy anything
that I don't think I've seen anyone enter my whole life and I don't think it ever made the switch to digital/hdmi so I have literally no idea who would use it
Strangest shop ever, hand painted signs which look like they were lifted directly from the 60s, absolutely nothing in the windows, and the walls are all made of this white hardboard stuff with holes in it, which again is a very 60s thing I think.
My parents' dvd/vhs player broke last year so they took it to this shop and paid SIXTY QUID to get it repaired, instead of buying another machine off Gumtree or something for a fiver. Mental.
Rising city centre rental prices, growth in online gaming, AND their main customers are at school all week
They change their window displays every month, but it's never open and their store opening times sign reads:
Monday - Sunday
I think it's a brothel.
think its an 'art project'
it kinda feels like a sort of 70s idea of what 'healthy living' is, and now that you can get much more appetising versions of that kinda stuff in mainstream supermarkets it seems odd that H&B is not only still really successful, but a regular sight on provincial high streets. They're surely the most successful 'specialist' shop?
last week in there on stuff for my hair.
Poeple like me keep them afloat. But like this- http://drownedinsound.com/community/boards/social/4448967#r8124136
The high street will go to pieces without you.
Genuinely terrified now that you're going to kill me.
Think you read that the wrong way.
You are the saviour of niche shops....
I think you meant WOULD then, not WILL.
They WILL go to pieces without you, they WILL.
arrrgh, don't kill me.
Buy one thing get another of it for a penny. Still managed to spend over a hundred quid on stuff for my hair and skin (It's worth it because I have the skin of a teenager though. probably because I ingest several grams of collagen and christ knows what scraped from the bottom of the sea, every few hours.)
it was £186. Fucvking hell.
does anybody need any collagen, kelp, GLA (in cream oil and tablet form) or 'Nourkin woman'? I have lots of it.
Elle McPherson style flowing locks Balonz. BecauseYyou're Worth It.
the ones in posh areas are good for allergy free food.

it's some kind of antiques shop. i never even saw it open, but my housemate once did and went in so it was definitely still in operation.
Would close down every 6 months and then re-open with totally different shop frontage, signs, advertising different services e.t.c. and then close down again, re-open...
Police used to hang round there all the time. Fuck knows what was going on.
That has computers running windows 95. In the basement, there is a massive amount of marijuana in shoe boxes. So you go in and you pretend to sign in to your AIM account and then they call you down.
That was weird.
