Ratner?

How did you come to make that up?

Because tbh, it sounds made up.

Is this a joke?

Are you thinking of crap shop names?

How about Greggs

Makes me think of cheap jewellery a la Gerald Ratner.

Or a rat.

Spar - well it's a shop, isn't it?

Why do they both have cheap shop connotations? Sorry but Ratner reminds me of Gerald Ratner and Spar in a convenience store

Noooooooo !!! ratner will always be synonymous with crap after that awful jeweller man said his Ratner jewellery was crap !! you can't do it to a child - no way !!

Spar is also a shop by the way !

You need to look at that bay name book again - I think you must be looking at a list of high street retailers by mistake !
