Now I live out in the sticks, I spend quite a lot of time in the local shopping centre. Last week, it got rid of its Metro, Stylist and Shortlist display stands. When I inquired why, I was told that they made the place look untidy.
Call me picky, but if untidiness was really their concern, I would have recommended getting rid of the bouncy castle, helter skelter, Chinese fake handbag stall, oily purveyors of little known skincare brand samples, randomly strewn garden furniture and the owl display that extorts a fiver out of you for looking at the owls. And never mind the local populace who aren't exactly dressed for Bond Street.
