YOU should know better, for flocks sake!!

I bet you feel sheepish now. Sorry for having to RAM the point home but I’d be FLEECED if I didn’t say something.


You've shattered my dreams of being a bellwether, I feel like I've been through a banding My bottle jaw is full to the brim and I've lost the curl in my crimp. When the Dam hears about this, she'll leave me a lost bummer......

The staff there were always knowledgeable, helpful and polite. When Waterstones opened in the 1980s, the sales assistants all had to have uni. degrees as far as I can remember. The shop was very well laid-out and a pleasure to buy or browse in.
Hope the "closure" is only a rumour.

Heard that earlier.

Anyone got any idea why it closed? I'd have thought shops like this can always hold their own.

It looks that way. People on Twitter were commiserating. Don't know why it closed as it seemed to be an institution.
