    Sad to see the fat twat has bought HOF. Was sad about it’s demise but now it will feel cheap. He couldn’t care lesss about his staff.

    People will always need their hair cut. Recession and online-proof. Likely be the only kind of shops we’ll see soon, apart from incredibly efficient clothing shops.

    Looking forward to buying some Lonsdale trainers from House of Fraser.
     
  6. Wonder if it was fat Mike's plan all along? Become a minority shareholder, wait for it to go to the wall, step in to save it and then fill it with Lonsdale shorts at 2 for £5.

    There was talk that Ashley would still put it into administration if he bought it. That could be to avoid the massive pension gap of £180 million. He could probably renegotiate the £5 million quarterly rent bill too. Interesting that he also has a 30% stake in Debenhams.
     
  10. How many clothes shops does Ashley own now then? Off the top of my head

    Van Mildert, Cruise, USC?

    As above 30% of Debenhams. I wouldn't be surprised if that's his next target.

    Flannels anarl doesn't he?
     
  13. Not sure on Flannels, wouldn't be surprised like. Feels like he owns all the clothes shop in the North East. I know at Cruise they were starting to put in place sports direct practices.

    So it's actually sports direct that have bought it, rather than Ashley himself and it seems he plans to do some rebranding. Lol

    Cool does that mean the reason SD shut down at the Wheatsheaf Retail Park was to reopen as Binns?
