Broadway Newsagent

Been in Accy town centre a few times this week and noticed that the newsagent shop on Broadway is closed - anybody know if they have closed for good?

According to the Observer "The lease on the property has been forfeited"
I guess they haven't been paying their bills.

One of the most well stocked newsagents I've been in for magazines although the customer service left a lot to be desired! Was a very busy shop though so its a bit of a mystery.

Nothing mysterious I don't think, forfeiture of lease is a posh way of saying they haven't paid the rent and their landlord has had to take drastic action to get them out!

I agree about the service in this shop, always got the feeling I was in the way and too much trouble to the staff when I went there. Heard a rumour today that the owner had left owing the landlord 'substantial' rent arrears.

So the landlord lives upstairs! How did he allow them to get into arrears?........oh sorry. I forgot.

It's the council!

Probably too busy chasing its 'Excellent' tag.......or Posting its entry into the Times 'Top 25 places to work' competition.
