As another major high street chain goes into administration, the BBC reports a slightly more hopeful angle. Using Blacks as a case study of a big name 'rescued', it suggests there might be more hope for the store that I, as a former Saturday girl in the BHS Home department, have an emotional attachment to. Where else do people get school uniforms from? Where can you buy useless stocking fillers at Christmas? I jest, but the loss of BHS will rock an already troubled high street and hopefully, now the media backlash to Philip 'Greedy' Green seems to have been replaced (for now) with other 'news', maybe someone will see the potential in BHS and help it make a return. THEN the question will be how on earth to PR that re-launch?!
Many already assume that the eclectic mix of goods in BHS will be added to the nostalgia list, along with pick 'n mixes from Woolies, videos from Blockbuster and books from Borders
