Having financial backing is different to being part owned though isn’t it? Especially if it’s family. Imo it’s the ownership in part or full by a bigger entity that defines something as non-independent.

Co sign again what you say Crutch.

That’s why I don’t consider YMC indie, being partially owned by FCUK, which is owned by Ashley, again partially.

I think there are levels too it, borrowing money from your parents as a one off to launch a business seems a lot more admirable than a business being a play thing for some wealthy kids who have an unlimited unchecked credit line,

I'd imagine they haven't paid for most of it (a la the ceasing trading) so will be going back to the brands

I noticed that too. Plus a store closure and now 15% off everything on top of a 30% sale.

Sad to see Atoo their sister store has closed. Ming who ran the shop was a top bloke.

Ming now owns/runs a Vietnamese restuarant in Stirchley, Brum, called Eat Vietnam
