Dear Friend/ Listener,
We constantly evaluate our Disney Stores to ensure we’re in the right sites to be able to provide Magical experiences for our Guests. As a result, we are creating new Disney destinations with various retail partners but also closing some existing Stores including the Romford Store. You will continue to be able to shop in our other Disney Stores and online at www.disneystore.co.uk.

Now, I will address two things. Firstly, I have dropped the “K” from my name. My name is Nicholas and there is no K there, so i felt I was cheating the world of a letter I am not entitled too.
Secondly, friends of the show Martin (@keiko315) and also @drunkatdlp was discussing this independently on twitter after we recorded the show, but before it dropped. great minds eh!
They informed me that the last of the eight they previously had in the West Country closed Feb 2015. This is the ones we were aware of such as Brighton and now Romford. He did say that the stores had been running at a loss, but my god if Disney closed everything they had running at a lost, we would see Disneyland Paris gone tomorrow. And there is no way the stores were loosing this much money.
When the show first started 4 years ago this week actually, we started a petition for Disney Stores to sell more items aimed at the adult market. I’d argue things are better, but we cannot claim that victory. However, I urge you if you care, email them. Ideally, post on their Facebook Wall, write to them on Twitter. The more public it is the better the response. And shop there when you can. We have lost enough already. I don’t want them to close anymore.
BECAUSE THAT MAKES ME MAD!
