Just thought I'd take the opportunity to say: I have never been in a jewellers in my life. Other than Christmas there never seems to be anyone in the shops.

if its lease related, it might have something to do with sports direct group preferring their own retail brands to use the units in the strand

There were a few comments on facebollocks saying it wasn't a nice place to work. Could be the problem

I’m sure none of their jewelry lasted even as long as Gerald Ratners prawn sandwich. 

A crappy shop, full of crappy goods, staffed by unhappy staff. But then again probably another case of people being told by the DfE that our streets are caked 5” deep with solid gold moon dust and they just had to invest into the Manx retail success story!

Don't know who the so called jeweller is, but there is a hundred miles between a jeweller and a trinket seller.

Any small shopkeeper who has to pay Strand St rents is doomed, in the day all the small shopkeepers used to own their premises but now overseas landlords are screwing them to the ground, such a shame.
