    Am I right in thinking they have a chain at Trent ham gardens.

    if I am right the quality of the shoes is excellent and the shoes are very comfortable.

    a lot better than the over priced and often poor quality you now see at Clark’s.

    How exciting. I can hardly wait for the big reveal.

    I have narrowed it down to 157 empty shops.

    It would actually work really well in the old Co-op.

    I noticed today that there is a coffee bar in the precinct on Parkside.

    Don't how long it's been there but haven't spotted it before.

    I suppose they can plan for social distancing from the very start

    If only they'd got open for the start of the month, the government would have funded their launch push.

    Yet another barbers opened in Stafford. This time in the old petrol station on the Stone Road.

    I’m not sure whether they understand the concept of “drive through” or how you’re supposed to get your car through the door though :)

    Your car seat reclines and it's "Anything for the weekend?" before you pay and drive off.

    If memory serves me right it's been open for a while, even going back into lockdown days. There was a belief that they were open well before barbers were supposed to be...

    It may well have been but I go past there quite often and hadn’t noticed it before today.

    I 'think' pictures appeared on Facebook, which made it look like it was open, but in fact the barber was actually cutting a family members hair (who they lived with).... So it was never open to the public...

    Bit worried about the hairwash & blowdry when you look at the washing machine visible through the open door.

    It's the ceiling fan with blades fitted to the paddles that worry me ... but if it's a drive thru .... perhaps it's necessary. :heyhey:

    Also , on my rounds , looks like the new owners of the old co-op department store have took a sledgehammer to certain parts inside, there's a load of what I'm guessing used to be the cash desk's piled up near the window, they've also half smashed through one of those support columns , I hope it's not a structural one
