Comet, 91-107 Dudley Road, Halesowen, taken 4 years ago
For many years Comet along with Currys/PC World have been the two leading electrical retailers in the UK. Unfortunately the economic recession coupled with the rise of on-line retailers has hit Comet badly. As a result, in early November 2012, the company suddenly went into administration. The administrators have put most of the stock on sale with varying discounts, with posters in the windows announcing that everything must go. Unless a buyer materialises, it seems that most or all the stores will be closed in a matter of days. This is the Halesowen store and two days after the sale commenced, the shelves were already beginning to look bare.
