Re: M&S Accrington

Just another nail in Accrington's coffin. Sad, but inevitable as the town declines further and further into the abyss which Hyndburn Council has unerringly created by it's apathetic approach to the needs of those they purport to represent.
cashman, accyman and smobile like this.

Devastating, maybe Ossy Mills will do the same as when Woolworth's shut down, and take on the vacated unit.

Re: M&S Accrington

What a bomb shell. Cannot understand why they think Rawtenstall will be better than Accy. I think it will have a great influence on the takings at other shops too sadly. Hope M&S live to regret the decision.

Re: M&S Accrington

i think M&S should be commended on sticking it out as long as they did.It wasnt too long ago they nearly went bust like woolworths and they could have easily shut the accrington branch but decided to keep it going

its just a pitty the council didnt support the traders and continues not to support them by allowing the town center to fall further and further down the crapper

where are all these councilors that pointed fingers at the tory lot saying they could do a better job?

could you imagine walking around accy considering starting a buisness never mind finding teh desire to keep on going?

how lancsdave has put up with it as long as he has ought to get him a medal

Because the most frequent bus service out of Accrington is the one to Rawtenstall

has anyone told the council that "operation stand in a meeting patting each other on the back like nothings wrong" isnt working ?

or has operation "stick your head in the sand" been given the green light ?

all joking aside dave its a bloomin shame the coucnil offers no support at all for people trying to make a honest living

Re: M&S Accrington

It seems to me that nobody on Hyndburn council gives a monkeys about Accrington town centre. What a wasteland it has become from the days when it was a thriving little town. Is it something to do with the big supermarkets that surround the town now? Money talks when it comes to big business and ,I think, the little man can go and swivel in their eyes. Whats the point in the new bus station too? Accy is in its death throws.

Re: M&S Accrington

from postings on facebook at least one councilor has made the effort to talk to the traders its just a pitty the mojority of them arnt the same

if at least 51% of councilors were willing to do something they could but sadly it seems not enough of them have a say so get outvoted

Re: M&S Accrington

Accrington needs a sparkling new bus station so it can be admired as we all leave to shop in neighbouring town's. Can't wait for the Manchester train service to come too. So much to look forward to...

I can't see 1) people catching the bus to the valley in any great numbers or 2) it even figuring in M & S's plans, ld.
Be interesting to see how big a car park they will build if any.
