Is this yours, or the pokes, or @brandy_snap's or all three
Ok, i just figured it out. Going through @brany_snap's pics, I'm guessing its you.
That said, if you are then you have retweeted pinxit, which is you, my brain is slowly turning to mash
Bit early to be on the sauce, Perks? Still, I guess the sun's well over the yardarm, etc, etc.
Didn't know ThePoke had tweeted it. Changed set-up line for the format here.

Didn't Blockbuster always look like that?
I've noticed it's mainly the shit retailers who have gone bust. And yet, Starbucks are still going. Who are these twats who pay a fiver for a cup of tea? Bloody idiots.
Woolworths, HMV, Blockbuster, Jessops, Gordon's Second-hand Monkey Faeces Imporium, Comet. They were all disappointing, full of poorly trained, rude staff or overpriced monkey faeces. I'm glad they've gone. Maybe we can see a return of the highly stressed, borderline-alcoholic independent shop keepers.
Ah that explains it. I've slept now so back on the ball

We never went away!
You are right though. Shaftesbury has around 100 businesses on the High Street. The vast majority are inependent. OK 5 are charity shops but there are still only 2 empty units which is remarkable. The businesses that have gone have been nationals who are no longer relevant. We just lost one of the shoe shops who sell cheap shoes but gained a little boutique where you can buy a lady's tweed cap for £50. We have an ace Gentleman's outfitters where you can get decent moleskins and an Edinbugh Wool Mills (70% off Winter Sale) My money is on EWM to go next.
