    Wow. Steve was an institution in Stafford. That's a shame but he lasted longer than many independents.

    That's a shame. Last time I went in was in January. Bought quite a bit from there in the past.

    Sorry your post does not make sense.

    are you asking how many units are there in total, empty or let??

    With regards to Accessorize ( load of crap that it was) they are finished. Monsoon and Accessorize closed down five weeks ago at the potteries centre, hanley. The end is nigh.

    There are currently discussions going on for 3 units by the cinema to be taken by one company in the leisure area :)

    Sorry your post doesn't make sense. Discussions are discussions and not occupying a unit.

    Apologies, I thought the "So how many empty units" section was quite clear in the sentence...

    Or was it just me thinking that??

    Carphone warehouse/Dixons are closing all the standalone Carphone warehouse stores to concentrate on selling phones through the existing main superstores so expect the unit on Queens retail park to go at some point....

    You'd be mad to plan anything right now, unless the landlords were crapping it and actually dropped rents so you could lock in a good deal.

    Yeah. I can see this thread getting busier and the Boom Town thread getting very quiet over the next few months

    while not a shop as such I did just find out that one of the airport/port taxi companies has closed down (Wings of Penkridge). Which is a pity as I found them pretty reliable.
    Perhaps unsurprisingly they have had virtually zero bookings lately.
