It was the perfect response to lost revenue, lost workers, loss of earnings and lost premises.
This had once been one of the most popular shops on the High Street. The owner paid his taxes, six staff, and his bills, always on time, never with an argument.
Now he couldn’t pay his lease, wholesalers, suppliers, staff, even a paper boy, and had no option but to close.
In protest, he used every last copy of a newspaper which was no longer on a sale or return basis to cover the windows and doors.
It was a sign of The Times.
