Shop closures can't be blamed on internet
WITH reference to another shop closing in the West End, that is another shop further up New George Street, why don't the people who own these shops lower the rent and spruce the outside of the buildings up? This would surely attract more retailers into the area.
The market chairman stated that the market is 85 per cent full, does he mean with stalls or customers? The stall holders have to pay high rent and rates. I have been going into the market on days when you expect it to be busy and there is a lot of stalls doing no trade whatsoever.
Everything can't be blamed on people doing their shopping online as that has only been going on over the past six years at the most. The Pannier Market was always busy even going back 10 years. The question is why was the pedestrian crossing taken away at the entrance of the Pannier Market, especially Market Avenue and Cornwall Street? Crossing in Market Avenue to Frankfort Gate is dangerous.
I am asking the Labour Council on behalf of the people of Plymouth, don't let us lose any more shops in the lower half of Cornwall Street and New George Street.
