Beales, the only department store in Ealing, is to close in October, Sunday 28th to be precise. See Beales’ statement.
At first sight this appears to be a blow for Ealing town centre. The good news is that Beales is one of the largest sites in the town centre and should be filled pretty quickly. That raises the question what with?
Beales is the kind of store I go to once or twice a year so I can quite see how they cannot stay in business.
