I am writing an opinion on Texas for the simple reason that nobody else has. Quite honestly it does not suprise me because I thought this chain of DIY stores had long gone. It has been years since they packed up and left town and I wonder if there are any more stores in any parts of the country? I often visited them, they were similar to B & Q, selling cheap furniture, wallpapers and paints, tools etc. etc. Rememeber the adverts too? With 'Texas Tom'? It makes me smile as I write this still hearing the advert echoing in my head. The furniture I brought from them has long gone and the home that wore their paper is miles away. Was it the new stranger in town, B & Q, that made them disapear? I really would be interested to know if they are still trading in other towns and cities so leave your comments below.
