●● 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.
