    Would make sense for it to be there but I don't see any vacant slots, unless Chisholm Hunter were to pop off............

    It's possible they've done a deal (if that's where they end up obviously) to lease the shop, as I know WoS were told to vacate it when CH wanted back in.

    I thought I might have a look in WF next time I am in Leeds or Manchester. Looked to see where they are located and saw "Appointment only"! They can take a hike!

    That’s because the Leeds store has been held up at least twice, so their insurance have probably told them to do that, or face not being covered if it happens again.

    Heard rumours of an Edinburgh branch opening in the refurbished St James centre too!

    How do “normal” jewellers manage it? Obviously security is a huge issue but there are options other than closed doors!

    Same ‘access’ for Manchester store. Didn’t bother looking further.

    No - that was their own decision.

    Of course, in parts of Europe, Jewellers have armed guards outside. Trouble is, with ‘Watchfinder’ the robbers are already inside....
