Interesting programe about Toye of Toye Kenning and Spencer

It was an interesting programme and good to see that it's still a "family-run firm".

Was a bit of a shock when I walked down GQS the other day and saw the empty shop

I think all the big Regalia Guys are having to tighten their belts. And shops are a big expense.

They've moved the shop and the offices above it round to Russel Court (about 10-15 minutes walk)
Just leave Central Regalia and the shop in FMH as the sole suppliers on GQS

As Bill says, a physical premises is an expensive overhead these days
