Re: Just another symptom

WHS I could probably agree on, it doesn't do anything well, although it's probably the only widespread high street chain to sell magazines (there are plenty of newsagents, but they're generally local. This may or may not be relevant). They've also cornered travel and hospital locations, and you at least know there will be an adequate if not necessarily extensive selection of books, and an emergency card and stationery selection.

Boots on the other hand, I can't think of many alternatives where various beauty/skincare/medicines can be bought, and many of the Boots stores have a better range of sandwiches than most other locations.
