Later I ventured in to Eason's store at Donegall Place, Belfast.
The ceiling on the ground floor appears unfinished: Bare concrete; ugly pipes, ducts, ventilators and wiring can be seen.
Is this their idea of a state-of-the-art shop? A sales floor without a ceiling?
Eason's appear to have removed the ceiling since it was occupied by W H Smith.
Furthermore, the floor is as basic as that of a butcher's shop.
Quite deplorable; so awful, in fact, that I shall avoid the place until such times as a ceiling is constructed.
