A SHOPKEEPER from Edinburgh has been reported to trading standards and the Police after he named his female shoe shop "Bad Mood." Terry Killens, 54, from Leith opened the shop in October 2011 but had not come up with a name for the store and he decided to name the shop on Christmas Day.
Terry said: "I was sitting trying to watch the t.v whilst the wife made the dinner and she was complaining all day. That's when the name hit me. Bad Mood as a shoe shop name is ideal because women are never out of shoe shops and never out of bad moods."
The name was met with mixed reaction from shoppers in Edinburgh. One woman said: "It's disgraceful, quite rightly he has been reported." One man said: "Spot on mate."
A spokesperson for Trading Standards said: "We can confirm that we have received several complaints (from women) in relation to the name of a store in Edinburgh. We can not comment any further."
Lothian and Borders Police refused to comment.
