Flannels adds fuel to indies’ Grazia promotion debate


This is getting beyond a joke. Its all down to greedy suits who back these companies and need a return. All the respectable indies in the UK just now are businesses that have been started by passionate individuals who love their bricks and mortar stores and these mummys boys who get handed mummys shop to run once they leave university make the classy indies shine like the stars they are. The internet is fab, however nothing makes up for the shopping experience these wonderful stores like Jules B and Sunday Best can offer. Hold tight Rhona and Jan, your stores are retaining dignity and respect by not going down this tacky route. Let Flannels and Coggles pick up the nouveau riche consumer with her huge credit card bill and anonymous shopping habit - she will not be around forever!!. You stick to your loyal local customer base who enjoys your expertise and philosophy which remember is why you now have the stunning respectable businesses you now have. Good Luck and sit tight, the indies of the UK are behind you.
