    As per the title....

    Any ideas what is happening to the old PC building?

    There has been a heck of a lot of work going on recently our back (my place looks over the rear loading bay)

    Poundstretcher sounds familiar to be honest? seeing as the one on Queens has now been gutted.

    You could be right but my money's on the Co-Op reopening a department store in town.

    Remember where you heard it first...

    When we were in the building, Matalan bots from their hq had detailed plans drawn out for their new store which was to sit there, so maybe they've finally agreed disposal of their current site, and finally made an agreement with Dixon's to take on the lease from their hands as as far as I know, Dixon's has like a twenty year lease on that place under pc world, and had many years remaining.

    Matalan were going to move to the old PC World shop but then "revised their business plan" and decided to stay at Queens. I suspect that what that actually means is that they managed to negotiate a better deal over lease renewal at Queens. The Queens Poundstretcher is to become an Oak Furnitureland unless someone has changed plans again.
