Beales to stay in Tonbridge....

As regular commenter Paul Bailey points out in one of his comments against the original post about the Sainsbury's pull out bombshell (scroll down) it looks like Beales department store is to stay in Tonbridge after all. They received a reported £1 million for surrendering their lease to allow for the Sainsbridge scheme so, unless they have to pay it all back, it'll be Freixenet cava all round at the next Beales board meeting. I dare say the staff in Tonbridge will be quite relieved as well. Where else would we all go for that essential Peter Rabbit money box christening present, or my Timberland boxer shorts?!..

Just in case you need another money box I am sure you will support the fellow independent
John Angell Jewellers established 1830.

Good news for us fellas; there will still be somewhere to buy decent clothes, at a reasonable price.

ps. I don't see why Beales should have to pay back the £1m, as it was Sainsbury's and not hem who reneged on the agreement.

pps. How about Tonbridge shoppers boycotting Sainsbury's after the contemptuous manner in which they have treated the people of this town?
