Allders RIP

In town today, I wandered through Allders as it floundered through its death throes. Today was this Oxford department store's last day of opening, unsaved by an unloving public. It was a sad sight to see a huge store empty of stock bar a few bras, the odd kitchen implement, and all the shop fittings for sale.

Last minute bargain hunters scaveneged for any remaining NINETY PERCENT-off bargains as staff boxed up or ripped down what little remained.

It was a sad thing to see. But then, when did I last shop there? I think I bought a knife back in 2003, but nothing before or since.
