    Visted the Leeds store don`t thing any thing of it, it had opened been open 2 weeks and went in on a Thursday but only 2 other customers in the store, and only looking didn`t look to be buying, expensive people these days will look but end up buying in local outdoor market, cheaper. Can`t see it last.
