Interesting proposed redevelopment of 40-44 Queen Street... Worth a look! I completely support this demolition and redevelopment. ... APR_122192

Metro Bank are the proposed occupier. I had Metro Bank in mind for the old Dorothy Perkins unit beneath the Indigo Hotel but this would equally work.

I just noticed some signage on one of the empty units by Office on Queen Street (opposite Capitol) for Patisserie Valerie. Nice to see some activity that side of town. Assume this would be in addition to the St David’s kiosk?

A Walesonline / Sion Barry moan.

Two recent articles about retailers closing stores: ... n-14314400 ... p-14225870

Both the M&S at Fforestfach and the Home Base at Culverhouse Cross are described by Sion Barry as being "flagship stores". They're nothing of the sort.

Really there should only be one flag ship store (perhaps per country or major region). But its meant to be a store that shows off the best of the brand, may be a particular destination in its own right, and generally has high sales/large size.

In any case, bog standard stores in out-of-town retail parks in fairly average cities cannot be described as flagship.

Really minor thing, but its just another example of the debasement of Welsh media. Poorly written articles where the same phrases get (mis-)used again and again.
