It is indeed but as soon as Ashley got his mitts on it it was always going to end badly >:(

Yet Rackhams in Altrincham has had a 'reprieve'!

If Kendals does close, the only suggestion I'm in favour of to replace it is to make it a five star hotel :smitten:

I'd be happy with that but Kendals for me, as it is, surpasses any other big store in the UK with the exception of Harrods

Unless itís a misprint Iíve just read that  the annual rent for Kendals in the city centre is four point six million pounds, no wonder itís closing down  :o

I read £4.63m  :o , there's talk of conversion to apartments with high end retail units on the ground level, but don't despair yet folks, is it a bird? is it a plane? no folks it's SuperKarney, yes Mr Personchester himself is launching a bid to rescue Kendals, how exactly isn't clear but it has got him into the paper and that's what is really important.

I hope he succeeds as I believe Kendals is the only shining beacon in Manchester

The new pop band, Pep and the Police? :D

Seriously, perhaps Karney has offered Mr Ashley a substantial rate cut if he leaves Kendals as it is
