  1. It'll all END in "tears" says:

    Carboot Circus

  2. Spectator says:

    Shhh… quiet… I can hear a crunching sound in the distance… do you think it could be Marshal Zhukov?

    No, it’s just the bottom falling out of the world’s financial system!

  3. Bristol??

    Went there once…

    Didn’t like it…

  4. This is a scream! Not sure if I like Helen Holland…I have a dream or …botox your handbag or…Single parents dancing with joy in the streets…best!

    Cornucopia Circus…carbon circus…

  5. Noel says:

    I properly laughed out loud!

    I’m calling it the “Jesus building”.

  6. Chris Hutt says:

    Carboot Circus, that’s the one, that’s the name we’ve all been groping for, simple yet devastating, the perfect antidote to the hype and hysteria.

  7. BristolPatriot says:

    The first to close down -Watch for Hardy Amies going into administration very shortly.

  8. thebristolblogger says:

    Agreed. Carboot Circus it is.

  9. Martyn Whitelock says:

    Cahoot Circus, surely?

    Spectator – I think that crunching sound is people walking on shattered glass.

  10. Des Bowring says:

    The good news is that there is a tree in Carboot Circus apparently!

    The bad news is it’s plastic.

    I had hoped to do a bit of birdwatching there but sod that.

  11. bingo caller says:

    This has the makings of a great game, everyone pick 5 stores , and the first one with all 5 stores shut down is the winner! I’ll have to go there now to pick mine out.

  12. thebristolblogger says:

    I was going to do a post about this. I’d suggest Hardy Amies and JJB Sports for starters then look at retailers bought in the last few years by private equity firms using “high leverage”. Eg. Massive debt that’s getting very pricey to service while revenues and sales are falling drastically.

  14. badnewswade says:

    It’s wierd to see them open shops with a half-price sale, I thought that was only normal practice when closing down, shurely?

    http://badnewswade.pwp.blueyonder.co.uk/cabotsale.jpg

    Oh wait THEY ARE CLOSING DOWN!! Ha ha, bye bye billboard people!

  15. Dave says:

    I went there yesterday. It’s just another shopping centre. Hype = unjustified.

  16. redzone says:

    thats it in a nutshell dave !! lol
    when the novelty wears off it’ll be back to cribbs !!

  17. Tim Beadle says:

    Doesn’t this mean the end of your discussion of the matter? You have, by mentioning the Nazis, invoked Godwin’s Law 😉

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Godwin%27s_Law

  18. Des Bowring says:

    At least Mussolini would make the Severn Beach train run on time.

  19. Ed says:

    … Yup; Carboot Circus is just the ticket 🙂

  20. thebristolblogger says:

    Not sure that Godwin’s Law is there to preclude a staple of British humour.

  21. badnewswade says:

    Ve haff VAYS off maykink you laugh!

  22. Spectator says:

    As the original post that makes mention of the Nazis, then I would suggest that Godwin’s Law cannot in this case be applied… to apply it thus would render any discussion of Nazism and anything pertaining to it, impossible.

    I would suggest that a second factor to be taken into account should be that the references are humerous… I suspect that BB does not really believe Hirst to keep a Waffen SS uniform and Luger in his desk drawer… even though Godwin’s law makes no explicit reference to exception on grounds of humour, it is important to remember that Mike Godwin is an American, and probably has an American, rather than a British sense of humour… there are distinct differences. No American could ever have dreamed up the Fawlty Towers episode ‘The Germans’!

  23. Tim Beadle says:

    S’alright – carry on. Good point about Mike Godwin’s Americanness 😉

  24. Ella says:

    I went into Harvey Nichols yesterday and omg LOL it’s like the size of my gerbils’ cage. I was really shocked, like people made a big deal out of it but it’s really, really, really small. A department store is meant to have like, actual departments. I felt really embarassed for it. I’m saying this not from like some anti-Cabot Circus perspective, just I don’t understand why anyone made a big deal out of it when it was genuinely tiny. Their make-up section was also shameful, I’d rather go to Debenhams thx.

  25. Steve says:

    According to the Cancer, a Carboot Circus shop is already closing down. Hardy Amies has gone bust.

    Does Helen Holland see this as a “quantum leap” too?

    And now its taken the professional newshounds a full 5 days to find out that Carboot’s got an industry doggie treat?

    Funny how Cushman Wakefield won the consultants prize and has a staffer on the jury. Small world isnt it?
