I wonder how old that fairly distinct branch actually is. I first saw it in
2000 and it was flooded by customers. I don't know if that is still the
case. The folks next door were suspected to be terrorists at one point (it
brought Victoria Park to the headlines). That ought to have been damaging
for business, as well as the general reputation of the area. Needless to
mention, MD have been criticised for poor customer support as well...

It sure looks like it, but it's painted blue. I used to live next door, only
seconds away from irresistible gadgets. *smirk*
