Another blow for the town I live!

Found 29th Apr 2009
Quite frankly the town I live is crap. Charity shops, takeaways and banks.

We used to have a Woolworths.

Now the Woolworths is becoming...

...A Pound World! (We already have it, just in smaller premises!)

I'm gutted as it isn't even a PoundLand which IMO is miles better!

Our Woolworths became a Home Bargains which I was well chuffed at. Used to have to go to other end of city but now it's a lot nearer.

Our woolies is still empty.

We live in an area of card shops and mobile phone stores... lol... it's insane!!

We dont have a poundworld even, no kfc, no burger king, no krispy creme, (whatever that is) no head entertainment? zavvi, topman the list continues. I get well and truly peeved when I see great offers here, but "instore" like tescos, my main tesco cant even stock a decent variety of food, let alone non-food items & offers.

Swap?

Now that is a bleak place to go shopping!!! Have had to kill time in Bridgend and done the shops in 10mins! I live in cardiff and can't see the new shopping centre (St Davids phase 2) being full of stores for long, after it opens!!

yeah it makes me wonder why they ever did start building that place, several stores have gone from cardiff recently and worse it is going to get!
Bridgend is awful though.

seriously, castlefords a dump.

Wee town I live in doesn't have much, not even the dross of chain stores. There is hardly anywhere to buy gifts or clothes or anything else. I'm hoping it will actually give an opportunity for lots of independents to open again instead of seeing the same old crap in every single town. Shopping centres are just like clones

lucky you, i live in Blackpool, famous for its stag and hen parties ( and people punching each other, women vomiting in the streets, men vomiting in the streets, over priced everything, women starting fights, men finishing fights, all are tourists ) locals cannot even go into the town centre for a pint as they are all set at fleece the tourist prices, plus dodging all the harpies wanting to fight or throw up, men just the same but they start a couple of hours earlier, blizzards of takeaway cartons blowing up or down every street, taxi fares around a tenner for a 15 min journey, your cars being nicked by drunks who have missed their last train home, ( 3 in 2 years ) all in manchester impounds. give me the boring towns everytime summer arrives and i'll move back here in winter

our woolworths is still empty too - not really suprising as it was one of the biggest shops in town - would love a home bargains too!!
