My understanding of the closure of Morrisons- is that they did not sell enough 'high-end/ big profit' stock?! I do not know if that is true.
My personal view is that any chain-store/ large company in an impoverished area should be glad of any profit- but hey, Morrisons have long gone, now.
Seacombe is devoid of everything- there is nowhere to go, nothing to see, really. I don't see how the new HB are going to attract people to the area.
I have already stated that I did not do a 'full shop' in any of the buildings previous stores- The Kwiky, Netto and Morrissons.....
Seacombe needs somewhere where people can do a full weeks shopping and where, funnily enough, visitors want to visit!!
I spoke to to Our Corner Shop Lady at the demise of Morrissons, 'Bet you are made up', I said. No actually, she said- actually lost customers. Apparently, non-locals rocked up to her shop en-route to Morrisons.
