apart from mine.....

There was a sign on the door about some disruption for a few days for some kind of refurb.

It was open Friday when I went past (assuming you mean the Douglas one)

It appears the local franchise is being broken up and Douglas stores have been sold. Sunk by an over enthusiastic expansion plan into Glasgow

 

The woman who used to manage the Douglas one went to The Sound I believe. The service level in Strand Street went downhill shortly after.

Strand 58 is now called Topshop. I hear that the beer's shite in there... alright if you drink 'shorts' I suppose!

So what do we call the stores now?

"The Coffee Shops Formerly Known As Coffee Republic" ?

Seems a bit long winded. And having visited the Victoria Street store a few times last month the trade seems a fraction of what it used to be, like an old dog on its last legs still smiling as you take it to the vets. All the CR branding is gone and the menu far smaller than before. Amazed if it turns a profit these days.

Had a chat to Nicholi in the ex CR, Victoria St on Tuesday, he seems to be in supervisory role, he was taking builders around the premises, clipboards akimbo. short story, major renovations in the pipeline, expect some closures before it emerges in new form.
