Stafford shops opening - Turning into a boom town?

This job advert that popped up during the night seems to suggest Poundland have secured new premises and will be returning to the town. Wonder where they'll go after the Guildhall farce?

They've favoured towards some very big premises recently, I wouldn't have thought the old M&S would be out of the question.

It's good news if they are, I missed them when it came to buying stocking fillers at Christmas.

The front hightstreet end of the coop is once again under offer, but feel that's probably too vast unless it's being split in half. The back half is beyond repair really and will probably end up being pulled down in the end.

Although M&S wouldn't be a bad shout either. Is there any space on the retail parks , can only think of Bathstore, but that's smaller than the Guildhall unit I think.

Plenty of space on Queens, which they were planning to go to at some point antway many moons ago

Enjoying a drop of red.
Whilst at Costa on Beaconside I noticed they have submitted plans to have 2 X Instavolt car chargers installed...
Instavolt are brilliant. Their app is informative, their chargers well maintained and you just rock up and pay by contactless. No mucking about, no membership etc.

They and Ionity should be the ones that have the motorway concessions, not the clowns that have it currently.

O normally try for the pod-point ones as a lot are free (when you can get a space) :)

I also miss pound land, the bird food and gardening stuff was excellent as were some of the books
I emailed Poundland just after they closed asking “please come back” and they replied that they had no plans to re-open in Stafford, so great news if they changed their minds.

Saw a workman coming out of the old newlook(?) Next to the old bright house. Not sure if that's for the gym or something else (Poundland?)

Apparently the people behind the Bank House have took on The Square , and it's being turned into a bar.
