The news that yet another (much loved, in my eyes) retail chain has gone into administration is very sad. It feels like our high streets are going down hill. Certainly in regards to Habitat, many stores have not made the necessary changes to keep afloat during these hard times. Even the wealthy are holding onto to their pennies.
Perhaps a chain like Habitat should have been creating more affordable ranges? I don't have all the answers, but I bet Mary Portas has a few ideas. This is what she said on Twitter: " ...its been a long time since Habitat was brilliant. Some private equity running it without vision or taste has led to this. Its sad".
