Generally no more General Trading
Today it was revealed that the General Trading Company has gone into administration. This does not mean the shop that invented both the Sloane Ranger and the wedding list will be closing its doors, but it is a sign that the dreaded Credit Crunch is starting to take its toll.
I visited the shop recently and noticed a distinctive air of failure, similar to the one also currently hanging over Heals. Both shops have developed that lack-luster feeling that turn customers away quicker than you can say Closing Down Sale.
