Its the same up here in Huddersfield. They're closing down like no-ones business (if you pardon the pun).
I've noticed that its the local ones in the outlying estates that are most severely hit - the town centre ones seem to be existing OK at the moment.
I hear JD Wetherspoon are going to announce a loss in profits later on though.
The majority of the ones that have closed down around here have been turned into flats, just like all the petrol stations that have shut up shop as well....
