If 1 Store Could Open near You....

Ask a Question

If you could have any store open in your town, which one would it be?

I wish there was a Waterstones! There are no bookstores near here and I miss browsing instore.

kitty88uk the channel islands. It's beautiful but crazy expensive. We're a tax haven so there's lots of money in the island but a lot of those that live here are skint

I would love to see a Pie & Mash shop open at the top of my road. I would most likely put on an awful lot of weight but I really miss the old fashioned London Pie & Mash shops. It would have to be a good one though with real eel liquer and marble table tops.

As I live between two upper schools I would open a shop selling just school regalia such as tights , knickers, shorts , socks ,etc as nearly every day the schoolies walk through town in torn clothes because they can't be bothered to go to the city.

Fitchet What a great idea. Back in the day we had tuck shops so your idea could replace these. Keep the prices low and you could be onto a winner.

I would love a M&S food hall to open near us. I’m sure it would would be very popular, we have Waitrose and Lidl about a mile away.

Pjran popular yes but M&S foods are pricey lol 😝 we have a big shop in town and a local one up the road too

We always buy foods with reduced prices yellow stickers

Past few years more people are buying them too lol like you didn’t care few years ago now they do whatever they can, one time when the cart came out a whole load of people rushed towards it! Damn crazy!

Pjran wow that is expensive lol 😝 you do know that it’s just their brand name that makes their foods that pricey?!

When you can get the same amount of fresh tomatoes 🍅 at a much cheaper price at most supermarkets?!!?!

Do you not buy foods that are reduced with yellow stickers?

Most of them are still good quality even tho ouch it’s near expiration dates

M&S or John Lewis would be a great addition to our town , but as M&S closed about 4 years ago I don't think they would reopen , thou the food hall which was tiny used to be really busy, never understand why they didn't expand that and reduce the clothing area in the store .

If there were two stores I could have reopen in my town it would be Wilkinsons and Debenhams.

HEDGEHOGS Yes Wilkinson's is a big loss to our local town , ours was replaced by The Range , but only a relatively small store with a limited range by their standards and in the middle of town, it's always dead quiet in there and I can't see them lasting long term to be honest.

HEDGEHOGS Omg me and my mum always say that can’t believe Debenhams closed town here in Leeds city Center!! We used to buy so many clothes there when on sale like half price or blue cross sale that’s 70% off!! plus with a members card get an extra discount of 20% or so! Bargain!

kitty88uk ...Daughter's just finished her Diagnostic Radiography Degree at Bradford, she gave up her rented flat on Great George St on Saturday & moved back to Sheffield..

Daughter loved Leeds, Sheffield has changed sooo much she says & no longer recognises it..

Sheffield lost Debenhams, John Lewis, Wilkinsons & others, city centre is pedestrianised now..

Can't pick a store simply because it would probably close down after 6 months, the amount of shops that has gone from our town centre is alarming, M&S gone, wicks gone, Select gone, Wilko's gone, co-op closing down soon, 4 banks gone, town is full of vape shops & tattooists now

We are lucky where we live that we have most shops in town. I know a lot of people in town would like a Primark as the closest ones are either an hour or 2 hours away. One thing I miss from where we used to live is the morrisons cafe, the closest one is an hour away now.

Sainsbury’s is down the road from where I live, Tesco express is up the road on the other side and have a bigger store further away can walk there but we usually go by car. There’s two express stores in town and a local Sainbsury’s and a much bigger one too so many shops in Leeds city centre

I feel lucky reading the comments. We have all the cheap foodshops near us. There's none mentioned we don't have near in our surrounding area.

The only shop I can think is Zara. The nearest one to us is at the metrocentre & I rarely go there.

I really wish we had more independent homeware/ decor shops. Everything is so samey in the shops these days.
