Disappearing London

London, UK

After 80 years, Franks is closing down. This world-famous ladies lingerie shop in Golders Green will be no more. Revered for their personal service and attention to detail, Franks has assisted countless thousands of women to choose the right bra and other intimate garments.

So another institution will disappear from the London scene. No doubt a victim of commercial pressure from the chain stores at nearby Brent Cross, it's a pity that another independent retailer has to close its doors.

I guess it's also a victim of the internet. I can recommend figleaves if you want to buy something special online for the woman in your life.
