I have the inside story - they have new management and have a new marketing strategy with many more stores aiming at younger people - smaller sizing etc. Won't go into details, but suffice to say that most shop management have 'left'.

Half of the Woodbridge one has opened as a Fatface - which on a cursory glance appears to be a retail outlet selling overpriced clothing

Next time you come up to Aldeburgh you'll find half the high street is now about the same as that. I miss the local shops for local people...

Fat Face seem to be on a spree in the East - Beccles and Southwold recently got branches as well.

I was in Aldeburgh a week or two ago - all art galleries and Ladies clothes shops these days. Paid £2.20 for an ice cream! Was only £1.20 at Felixstowe the other day and you get a flake - I went to Felixstowe to photograph the donkeys back on the seafront for the first time in 50 years and was mildly impressed by the air of revamp.

In it's favour Aldeburgh does still have the same butcher it had 16 years ago - taught both girls; I think the grandaughter will be with us in a couple of years :-) Darned good bloke as well...
I loved the words you wrote to me/But that was bloody yesterday

The Broughty Ferry (seaside suburb of Dundee) shop is currently being refitted as an M&Co.
