manchester randomly added to the list of things on sale in the local john lewis equivalent type shop.

UPDATE: there’s some problem with comments on the blog at the moment. This is what two of my new zealish friends said:

BUSS SAID:
Answers on a postcard.

a)Manchester (pronounced /?mænt??st?r/ ( listen)) is a city and
metropolitan borough of Greater Manchester, England.

b)A linen and bedding manufacturer in New Zealand.

ANDY SAID:
