As of this morning the southern end of Tottenham Court Road looks a little less neon, after the enormous red Time Out sign was removed from the entranceway to the magazine’s head office.
A reflection of the title’s dwindling influence in the capital? Hardly, and enough of the snark, pal: they’re shifting 305,000 copies per week since the freesheet move, a remarkable 455% year-on-year increase. The reason for the sign’s removal is more mundane: an impending office move, where we’re assured that the sign will be resurrected in all its neon glory.
