I see Poundland as gone into Administration -

https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/business-44436435

I've never been the world's best shopper and when I do it's usually at some out of town supermarket or my daughter uses her Amazon account (or whatever it is the younger generation uses these days) for whatever I may need.

I even noticed that my High Street Bank had closed down the other day, without me even knowing about it!

Seems that every blue moon when I actually do walk down the local High Street that another shop or two has since closed - and now even pound shops are in trouble!

Does anyone go shopping 'in town' anymore or is that now a thing of the past?

Is internet shopping as good as they say or is it for the younger generation to be more controlled and targeted by the global multi-nationals - all these bots reading what you search for and placing 'relevant' advertisements thereafter for you to see (and be pestered with).

Will children never know the pleasure of standing outside shops holding 'the shopping bags' with your dad (who is having a quick woodbine) whilst your mam is inside buying a new headscarf or a loaf of bread or something?

Happy times!

Well probably not the happiest at the time but we actually did things as a family and can now look back on them fondly.

Are High Streets relevant anymore - will you miss them when they are gone?

Or do you still want them to stay?

I mainly buy online these days, but do still like to actually go to a shop sometimes if i'm clothes shopping. It's a pain having to send clothes back if they don't fit or don't suit.

Manchester city centre still seems to thrive but the smaller towns are suffering, out of town complexes with free parking are the reason why i reckon, who's going to pay for parking to come into Bolton when they can go to the Middlebrook?

I buy a lot from independents as there are so many close by and they often stock locally made or imported products which you won’t find cheaper online. To me that’s the future of high street retailing, people don’t feel connections to big chains.

How can anyone buy lingerie or underwear online?

I like nothing better than going into Agent Provocateur and trying on the sexy knickers and bras.

The internet will never be able to replicate that feeling of all eyes looking my way in awe.

Try using the changing rooms next time.

It's the only way I,for one,can buy it. I might be outed if I had to go into a shop.

Online,my secret is safe.

I didn't really think my last post through. I meant slippers,of course.

Do they actually say "Aw"?
Something may be getting lost in translation.
