    It will be interesting to see where they’re all going to park if they move 200 staff there. (Staffordshire Place)
    I was about to say the same about Just for Pets but realises Tumble weeds post us about Kingsmead.

    I'm sure they have a deal with the new Riverside carpark, although I may be wrong.

    I thought you meant the Top of the World, until I looked at the picture.

    ‘Grab a granny’ night ?
    I was just reminded of the depressing realisation that now, for me to be someone’s ‘toy boy’, my partner would have to be aged 110.

    My mate works for a social media / app development company. They don't have any parking at their existing place, so I don't think that will be an issue for them.

    The company is looking to expand, hence wanting a shiny new office.

    Did you put an "n" instead of an "t" by mistake when you wrote shiny :)

    Went into the new 'Just for Pets' on Kingsmead over the weekend. It is very nice, sort of a bit more upmarket version of Pets at Home.

    Its because they don't vacuum pack all the treats, which doesn't bother me TBH.

    It reminded me of when I used to work in a supermarket. sometimes a pet food pouch (wet food) would swell up and burst. :barf:

    Whoever has taken on this unit has had a steel shutter installed in the unit, so whatevers moving in isn't going to be a charity shop, or food place.

    A new crafty / artsy / cushion shop has opened called 'all about ewe' in Littleworth, where the Katherine House Hospice shop was.
