SUM­MING UP TOWN’S WOES

Macclesfield Express - - YOUR VIEWS -

ROLL up! Roll up! Wacky Macc’s back in busi­ness.

Only here could the sale of the main sur­face car park to pro­vide an un­needed cinema be seen as the so­lu­tion to the town cen­tre’s retail prob­lems.

The win­ners – edge of town busi­nesses, par­tic­u­larly su­per­mar­kets with lots of free sur­face park­ing (and there’s an­other on the way)

The losers – town cen­tre busi­nesses, shop­pers, work­ers and res­i­dents. That pretty well cov­ers it.

Time for a re­brand – what about Fol­ly­field, with a dough­nut for a logo, fa­mous for its empty cen­tre.

Any con­nec­tion be­tween dough and nuts I leave up to you. David Heathcote Crown Street West Mac­cles­field
