Julian Graves closed last August it seems.

I loved a Julian Graves shop and would come home with far too much in the way of dried fruit and beans.

Thinking about doing another shop of those items I have just Googled to see what was going and have discovered that the whole chain went under last August.

Oh woe is me.How am I going to manage?

I used to buy a lot in Julian Graves - our local one went ages ago and then I noticed that all the others were selling things off and not replenishing the stock - only a matter of time then. I really miss them.

Shows how long it is since I last visited the local town centre

Me too.

I didn't even know they were selling stuff off cheaply or I would have been round with my pantechnican(?).

Where am I going to buy enormous quantities of assorted sultanas now?

I think the shop in our local town was taken over by Holland and Barrett.
