It was good to hear via Proactive Investors and The Telegraph that venerable London retailer Liberty managed to have a very good holiday season at their landmark London store behind Regent Street. Their retail success, which almost matched the levels of last year, also allowed them to clear out a good deal of stock--which in turn made planned January store renovations much easier. However, the sad note is that reportedly the renovation will will result in that two-thirds of its famous mock-Tudor fronted London store being redesigned. A sad blow to those of us who love the ancient style; yet I have not read of any protest. By the way - I hate the term Mock Tudor.
