It is the time of year for my favourite competition - the national quest to find the slickest use of a retail pun.
In previous years we have had the "Curl up and dye" hair salon and the fish mongers "A Plaice for us" .
In the increasingly uniform world of clone high streets there is less and less that is unique, fun and distinctive.
The retailers who come up with shop names like these are a welcome antidote to the bland chain stores that occupy so much of our high street.
This years pick of retail puns:
- The male grooming establishment - Barber Blacksheep
- The glass retailer - Pane in the Glass
- The cattery - The Pawchester Hotel
- The kebab outlet - Licence to Fill
Please let me know if you have a nomination @chrisitv
