Now some of its most loyal ex-employees have banded together in a bid to share some nostalgia with old colleagues.
The 25 Club - a group of ex-employees who worked for the firm for more than 25 years - are hosting a reunion and have issued an open invite to fellow former employees, who worked for the firm for any length of time, to come along.
