For a while, we’ve thought that the former Bensons for Beds shop in Camberley’s High Street has been sold. (We watch it with interest because we’re under the impression that, though the ‘For Sale’ board said that the premises had planning permission for redevelopment, the permission had actually expired.)
Anyway, we’ve looked more closely. There are three letters that we hadn’t noticed before on the large ‘Sold’ posters in the window. ‘stc’ – Subject to Contract.
Which, as we all know, means that the building probably hadn’t been sold when the posters were installed. Maybe it STILL hasn’t been sold. In which case it will be in good company – the most northerly shop on the east side of the High Street (is that no. 1?) has had notices on it saying that it has been let, ‘subject to contract’, for months and months.
