Commercial: Recession bites (2)
Snatch, in Soho. Rest easier, as they have another branch still extant.
However, it is marvelously written parting shot:
We gave it a good shot, but our best was not good enough.
Our thanks to everyone who tried us and to all our loyal customers. It’s been a pleasure. As they say… nothing ventured, nothing gained. You win some, you lose some, blar blar blar :-) Chin up!
No thanks to all those who’d walk past every day with their costa coffee and prêt slims without ever giving us a try. We can see the future and it’s homogenous.
With sincere gratitude to my staff.
I won't pop into Pret without feeling guilty now.
