Discount tents

From New York Times reporter Margalit Fox on Facebook, this entertaining play on Richard III’s “Now is the winter of our discontents”:


Surely photoshopped, almost surely based on one of the many Mountain Warehouse stores in the UK (and now elsewhere).

For instance, this one in Kendal High Street (Kendal, Cumbria):


Several sites maintain that the shop is in Leicester — but that’s just because that’s where Richard III was buried.

Wikipedia on the chain:

Mountain Warehouse is a British outdoor retailer selling equipment for hiking, camping, skiing, cycling, running and fitness.

Founded in 1997 by Mark Neale; Mountain Warehouse has grown from a single outlet store to over 240 stores in the UK, Europe and North America.

    It looks more like millets to me .. it’s not mountain warehouse stock. The logo is photoshopped for sure but still millets colours
