Letters: Doors Wide Open

Published by on Friday, 2 May 2008No Comment

As we are all concerned about the effects of global warming I have for some time noticed that the Churchill Square branch of BHS are always open. I spoke to a member of the management team, and was told it was not store policy to keep the doors open, but it was customers who left them in that state. The shop has just been re-fitted but nothing has been done about the constantly open doors. Do they not think this is a bad thing? Marks and Spencer and Boots have successfully dealt with this problem by having automatic doors fitted. Could not BHS, as a landmark high street store, do the same? Not only is this bad for the environment, due to all the heated air leaving the store in the winter months and all the air conditioned air making a rapid departure in the summer, but it also dissuades customers from trying clothes on. At present I find the temperature inside the front of the shop extremely cold.
