    Let Go!!!!! no they've been made redundant, lost their jobs. Be correct with the headline Yahoo, too often this bland terminology is used to try and soften the impact, generally in favour of government or banks.

    Maplins demise is purely down to the expensive price of things. At one point they used to be reasonably priced, even against online shops BUT then their prices sky rocketed.

    Maplin is too expensive. Look online and the cost is usually halved.

    PWC! More profit from unfortunate Retailers, This company should be regulated,
    Huge office complex by Charing Cross Station,Why is this? Can anybody explain???

    I was in the local store the other day and they are selling some stuff off and it was still way more expensive than you can get it for elsewhere. Its a shame as I have used them for electronic components for over 30 years but then they branched out into all sorts of other products which was a mistake.

    Once again PWC profit from the misfortune of others.
    But hardly surprising given PWC's breaching of Government and European Union rules on public sector procurements.
    A long hard look at PWC and the other large "accountacy comapnies" is needed.

    It's a shame, but it'll go the same way as Tandy's.

    I have always enjoyed a look around Maplins and bought the odd item will be sorry to see them close if it comes to that.
