Alex Polizzi helping struggling family firms.
Tonight she helps a curtain & fabric shop in East Ham, London
Three brothers run the firm now which was started by their Grandfather & Uncle in the 1920's.
I know all the brothers quite well, Lawrence, Kevin & Jeremy, am quite shocked they have gone down this route to be honest & just hope the programme does not show them in a bad light as these shows often do, just have a feeling this could be too cringeworthy for comfort for the three of them, hope I am wrong.

Oh snap I just made an observation..can someone merge my thread with this?..please mod?
I agree that their shop needed sorting but the product..minimalist won't last for ever.

And Shabby-Chc is really nothing of the sort.

Yes, she is.

Lots of these opinions are very subjective.

Really disappointed at how the hotel group place an emphasis on quality and poo poo weighted hems
and also how the over-long hem in the room isn't actually puddled, it's just not right.

I hope there is a decent outcome for them.

I think Alex just read them the riot act there!

I don't actually remember ever seeing her swear on this before?

Just seen your comment Liza and my last one here echoes it.
There's shopping smart and there's penny pinching. If I'm paying good money for a decent hotel room, not a budget room, why would I - want to see something of a poorer quality than I have at home?

They can easily work with different fabrics and styles, but if they provide really good quality workmanship, that's where they should score - probably by doing higher end design via a good internet site and not clients visiting their premises.

Not liking Alex's shouty screeching.

Predictable and formulaic nonsense:

1. Slag off the business
2. Show family arguments and make them look silly.
3. Show them how it could be done by taking them to successful shops
4..Shop make over.
5. Marketing.
6. Shop relaunch with Alex's business contacts in attendance.

Boring. Same old....

I would have done more than swear at them.

Yep, that's the consensus in my front room. He could take his swag and tails with him too!

That's a fairly diplomatic way of putting it.

Hmmm Alex was a disappointment today. Not as sexy as she used to be.

Really, I thought she looked sexier. I like her hair a bit longer and when she puts it up.

Something to do with her hair. Mind you, she doesn't do it for me at all!
