I suspect that the winner was not unexpected. And rightly so…

But when it comes to Dixons well i would suspect that they would only be loved by those who have a longing for shocking customer service and love spending their hard earned on extended warranties. And maybe this goes some way towards accounting for Dixons less than wonderful recent results. I wonder how mourned they would be if they disappeared from the high street? Well i dont wonder…

Habitat is a different matter. The group has apparently been losing money since 2005 and its place in the market has become squeezed by cheaper competitors. In many ways they are now a nostalgia brand and despite the administration and break up, they will not be disappearing altogether. But ultimately another iconic name from a different age has effectively disappeared.
