Darwen isn’t that bad. The new-builds where Cranberry Fair used to be are at the very south end of Darwen so close enough to Bolton to commute without having to go through town centre.

Not for me haha

Another nail in the coffin coming...HS2 link straight into Wigan putting it just over half an hour to Birmingham and less than 90 minutes to London.   Meanwhile the rattler from Bolton to Manchester

Food snobbery is something that gets to me, possibly because my kids go to Johnson Fold school so I see and hear of the fucking struggles some people have to go through constantly.   I get all my me

The numbers quoted were massively exaggerated bullshit.   I nip into the centre every Saturday morning. Yes, there are a few homeless in the doorway of BHS, yes there are a few folk sat around beggi

See 201 St George's Road got its license renewed, has anyone actually ever been in there ?

 

Seedy sex shop, surprised they have survived the internet era.

Always remember going to Munich in the late 80s and a simililar shop (but much bigger) in the city centre was full of folk  just as many women as men. We've probably caught up since thankfully, but still like to keep it 'behind closed doors' to a certain extent.

A bit of topic, but I think the same way re. porno mags.

Plenty of newsagents still stock them, but I can't understand how they turn a profit or who's buying them with the internet being what it now is.

Do they have good crosswords or something?

Retro wanking. It'll be seen as the cool, hip, way to knock one out

Aye.

Always thought it wasn't in the best place.

As I argued in this thread about Ye Olde Pasty Shoppe, wrong location shouldn’t end a viable business because you can relocate. Both Pasty Shoppe and Campcraft could open up in places with more footfall.

I’ve never priced up one of those portal framed and cladded things so no idea what one similar in size to campcraft would be. A deal with the council and Peel Holdings for one of the empty shop units in Market Place. I reckon a floor of Debenhams will be available in next six months.

I went to Bolton this morning to pick some stuff up from Matchwinner, I checked opening times of Debenhams and JD sports on the  internet and thought I'd have a browse and maybe spend a few quid, got there at 9.30 and they have changed the opening times of the Market hall to 10.00am, money stayed in pocket and home before 10.00 The town is deserted

He has since deleted the tweet unfortunately, shame

I just had a look on their websites. Bolton Market Place and Debenhams Bolton both have the correct opening time of 10 am, JD Bolton Market Place are lazy cunts who still have the 9am opening time on their website.Its been 10 since it reopened after lockdown in the summer
