Department stores caonnt cut it in an age of Argos, supermarket electricals, cheaper internet alternatives etc hence the closure of Beales, of JS Sanders, Rowses, any other department stores in Ealing in the last 20 years you care to mention. It is a sad but true fact. Kingston-upon-Thames with a higher average GDP than Ealing has survived Primark. Ealing will have to learn to do so as well if reports in the Ealing Times that they will be taking over the lease are correct.The main gripe about these chains though (including Next according to Sunday Times) is their use of child labour.
