    I buy most of my clothes from the one in MK. They're shutting it down before Ashley gets his fingers on it!

    Saves me from a real moral dilemna!!!

    If he keeps the stores running and saved the 17000 jobs that are at risk I for one will applaud him despite his association with them up the road.
    However if he fills the stores with the tat he sells in his sports direct emporiums then that's another matter altogether.

    They're still closing about 60 stores. And unfortunately for me, those nearest to me.

    He will need to reduce expenditure in his other business ventures to fund this one

    Not at all jd.

    Each business are separate entities.

    My son-in-law just did a whole load of research on the guy and his businesses in preparation for a job interview with one of them.

    Trust me, the guy ain't short of a penny.

    The bugger's a shrewd ****er. And loaded!

    Owns a massive chunk of Debenhams as well doesn’t he?

    As said he’s an incredible businessman, no question.

    It was a half-hearted attempt at humour mate - implying that N*FC's player budget is going to be slashed

    Apparently so, yeah. Never seen it, but it is apparently an "up market" clothes shop

    Oh they sell some nice clobber mate. Very expensive and usually in sizes too small for me <laugh>

    But he's opened one in Darlington. He's ****ed up there like. It will lose money 100% here. Not that we're a poor town, just don't think the population has enough high earners to shop there when the same lines are 3rd cheaper online. Saying that it might do ok with our little Van Mildert closing though it was a small store for a reason. This Flannels is pretty big.
