So, who is going to acquire Primark, as the building looks all boarded up at this time?

It closed in 2001, I studied with one of the grandsons/heirs to be for a while. He was a right big-headed personality. I remember me and some other year-mates being secretly quite pleased he got taken down a notch or two by the misery that hit his family company. Very petty though as thousands lost their jobs.
