Junk and Disorderly

The UK’s Best Shop Pun

You may be aware that I do like a pun or two, and it seems that I am not alone in that.  The Local Data Company have recently ran a competition to find the country’s best pun in a shop name.  I thought that the Belfast restaurant Thai Tanic might make an appearance, but it was not there, and neither was Internet favourite Sell Fridges.  The winner was Chesterfield’s Junk and Disorderly, a second-hand shop on Market Street in the Derbyshire town, run by Pete Yates.  His pun has ensured a £100 prize goes to his chosen charity of Prostrate Cancer UK.
