News: The modern name of Kent is derived from the Brythonic word kantos meaning "rim" or "border", or possibly from a homonymous word kanto "horn, hook"

Primark went into BHS old store, then added Woolies old site recently, with just a little shop in between, a cafe if I think right.
For some time the shop between was Tchibo, a German company. They completely changed their stock in all their stores in Europe every Wednesday, and had identical stock in each store. It all carried their own brand and some of it was excellent value and some less so. Changing stock got people impulse buying, because if you didn't buy while it was there it was gone by the next Wednesday ('old stock' could be bought on-line, but they didn't advertise that too prominently). Regarding the brand, often it was not their own goods, but other peoples' goods carrying the 'TCM' brand. There was a cafe in there, which also sold good value coffee in packets. Now Tchibo has gone and, as LynL says, there is just a cafe there.

It's no use getting old if you don't get artful
