Default No wonder Focus went bust!

On Friday I popped into the Spalding branch to look at the sandpapers.
I was especially looking for aluminium oxide sheets, but not in
assorted packs (the only ones I've found). The prices were off the
wall! The store had a dismal air about it, as if it realised the
forces of doom were upon it.

I won't be going back, not until a change of ownership. Sad, because I
bought a lot of DIY stuff from Payless in the 1980s.

Cheers!
