Wild Card's description 
Conventional banks continue to fail, including those now owned by governments: suddenly in 2015 most financial services are provided by large supermarkets (Tesco, Carrefours, Aldi, etc). This also finalizes the relocation of community activity away from town centres, towards supermarket sites (which also pushes up their corporate valuations).
