There used to be Bake'n'Take where I lived in Clifton, Bristol, commonly referred to as Fetch'n'Wretch. Up until a few months ago we had Curry in a Hurry in Preston.

There used to be a couple of leather jacket shops in Brighton called 'Soixante neuf' (sp) and 'four Skin' both were owned by same person. I'm not sure if they are still there now.
