Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

●● LOTS of you had some­thing to say about last week’s story about the pro­posed new Lidl store at Park Green.

Joanna Louise Hills­don: Lidl is good, wish there was an Asda com­ing tho... com­pared to Tesco and Sains­bury’s, Asda is the best (my opin­ion).

Christina Heath­cote: Lidl is good. But how is it we at­tract food stores but we can’t hold onto cloth­ing stores? We al­ready have 3 Tesco, a Sains­bury’s, Ice­land, Aldi, small Mor­risons, a num­ber of Co-ops and other con­ve­nience stores but we have to leave the town for clothes.

Suziee Mar­land: Lidl’s a good idea, so is Asda, but I’m think­ing clothes shops. I and many oth­ers are sick of trav­el­ling to Stock­port or Manch­ester just to buy clothes be­cause all Macclesfield has is char­ity shops.

Julie Thorp: How about a nice depart­ment store with a dif­fer­ent se­lec­tion of thing for house and clothes etc? Sick of food shops. Don’t mind Lidl and would go in, but it is an­other su­per­mar­ket.

Jonathan Griffiths: What ev­ery­one fails to see is cloth­ing com­pa­nies don’t want to come to Macclesfield town cen­tre. We all want a lot of dif­fer­ent things for our town but un­less the coun­cil and the landown­ers wake up and start work­ing to bring busi­nesses in then we’re doomed to a in­flux of food and char­ity shops!

Kerry Robin­son: Love Lidl, hope this hap­pens.

Kate Vaughan Hill: The Macc Aldi is the busiest one I’ve been in, so a Lidl will be good!

Nikki Knight-bar­nett: We need some clothes shop for kids as well as adults. We would never go into town for clothes as there is no choice, esp for my 12yr old boy.

Bill Belfield: Why Lidl, why not Waitrose or John Lewis?

Anna Jade Gough: They do peach juice! Can’t wait.

Sandi Burgess: If we have to have an­other food store I’d pre­fer Asda with a petrol sta­tion.

Tracy Lo­mas: We need the cinema...more to do to bring peo­ple in as ev­ery­one trav­els out of Macclesfield for en­ter­tain­ment. If more come in, more shops would be used.

Mick Greenall: What we need is a store that sells cheaper fuel. Tesco set the price and the rest around town fol­low.

Christine Dale: There is sup­posed to be an Asda go­ing up Lyme Green busi­ness park some­time soon so I’ve heard. I hope so be­cause it’s sup­posed to be re­ally big with ev­ery­thing from food to clothes to elec­tri­cals.

Michelle May Es­p­ley: Pri­mark

Stephen Hall: Great, bring it on!

Toni Kelly: I per­son­ally am dead set against a su­per­mar­ket at that lo­ca­tion. As a res­i­dent of St Ge­orge’s Street and I am sick of driv­ers tear­ing down the road at speed, us­ing mine and the sur­round­ing streets as a short cut to avoid Park Green traf­fic lights. It will only get worse with more traf­fic be­ing en­cour­aged to the area.

Linda Swindells: Too many cheap stores start­ing to make Macclesfield look cheap. Sorry, don’t want it. ●● THERE was a lot of on­line sup­port for Chloe-Louise Fearn, who is com­pet­ing in Miss Trans­gen­der UK pageant and needs as many votes as pos­si­ble.

Amy Wood: Good for you, Chloe!

Mags Long: Home is where the heart is, make sure your heart en­joys ev­ery sec­ond of ev­ery minute xx

Sarah Sturmey: Good luck Chloe! X

Lesley Hill­house: Good Luck Chloe, be proud of who you are xx

Tr­ish Wis­son: Hope you do it hun xx ●● LAST week Hay­ley Burgess ap­pealed for wit­nesses af­ter she was in­volved in an al­ter­ca­tion with a fel­low driver on Bond Street.

An­drea Gard­ner Burgess: How dis­gust­ing to do that to a young lady!

Anna Jade Gough: Poor girl! I’ve had sim­i­lar hap­pen to me on the Tesco round­about. I had a sleep­ing baby in the car and the guy was scream­ing and shout­ing at me. It’s very in­tim­i­dat­ing.

James Caw­ley: This is start­ing to be­come more com­mon. Get a dash cam.
