    Sad to see jjb in the state it’s in, I used to work for them back when it was thriving with hundreds of shops a fantastic gym business and 6 state of the art soccer centres, then once mr whelan sold up, the business slowly declined and shops were closed the gyms and soccer centres were sold in an act of desperation. I now work for Dw sports and could see mr whelan taking some of jjbs stores should it go into administration

    Well, i went into middlesbrough captain cook square today, and on the jjb sign it said that today was it’s last day. So, that’s shut now. It’s a big shop too, so many shops closing down :(

      On past form, I can’t imagine it will be empty too long – Captain Cook Square seems to have a pretty good record of filling its units fairly quickly!
