Not quite GPS
Ah yes, the insistence that the old M&S was a good 10-15 minute walk...
It's still very much in the town centre, and as demands on retailers have changed they've had to look how their units operate. The only real viable place in town was the guildhall but that need significant and costly remodelling to have the same kind of floor space.
I didn't realiseThe Tavern was taken!
Never said they did, they were in a list of 4 former residents of buildings that ended with the words, are now all taken.
I see. I just wanted to make the point that I think they're morons.
Rumour that shoe zone, going to be a damn thrift shop? absolutely not needed, air ambulance I think?
Air ambulance need all the money they can get!
In some areas of the British Isles, air ambulance provision is state-funded.
Shush, don't let the torys hear that!
Not much they can do about it.
I do think that charity shops have their place but I really wish that they were all bunched up together in the same area.
(In the same way that all the jewellery shops are together in Birmingham in the jewellery quarter).
I sometimes have cause to visit charity shops....the most recent when a friend of ours retired. We were having a party and were giving him a hamper of "old man" gifts.
I trawled the charity shops from the length and breadth of Stafford searching for flat caps, old man cardigans, walking sticks, etc.
So much easier if they were all together in the same road.
Shove 'em all into the Guildhall?
It does look like we may never see our Debenham's store now - they are alleged to be thinking of closing ten existing ones...
I did see that this morning , n I'd say it's extremely unlikely that Debenhams will be coming to Stafford anytime soon.
As for shoezone closing, I don't see having a charity shop as a replacement doing anything good for town. Someone should have applied a change of use for that property and turned it into a nice cafe. Least then that area would have looked more appealing, n all three could have had outdoor seating too.
Even more extremely unlikely than it was before..
I'd imagine they'll close their not fit for purpose stores. The one in Nottingham, for example, is in an old building and doesn't flow as the newer ones do.
Er, where is Shoezone? I don't think I've even heard of it until @marky's post.
MEB - between the Butler's Bell end of town and Radio Rentals/Caffe Nero.
Two of my friends owe their lives to Staffordshire Air Ambulance and their excellent crew. The fact that most/all air ambulances are not state funded and rely on charitable donations is an absolute scandal.
But then so many other things that don't happen in the UK are a scandal as well so it just gets lost in the mix.
Not the election thread I know but if one of the parties just had the balls to say, look were going to raise the tax rate by x% but in exchange we're going to fund a, b and c, they'd get my vote.
It just seems odd to me that we buy all these helicopters and aren't even invading people with them now.....
..I wonder what they do all day?
I don't really see where there would be much increased funding required.
Fuel, which is mainly tax so....
