Its almost here! and the last weeks to Christmas are fast approaching. I want to make yet another appeal. Can I urge my readers to give consideration to using your local shops during your Christmas buying spree?
I am so very keen to ensure that our smaller traders gain some much needed revenue in the run up to Christmas from all of us who live locally.
What with the internet trade, and the big shopping centres glitzy advertising programmes. The Local Store whom we rely on so much when you just need that little ‘something’ is suffering so badly.
A poor Christmas for them may see them put out of business! That would lead to a much worse local community if we witnessed that happen. Closed down shops in Shopping Parades quickly attract the wrong sort of attention.
So here is a reminder for you of the Shops and Shopping Parades that would love to see you as a customer here in our Ward of Wednesfield North.
The Top Shops corner of Higgs Road & Griffith Drive
The Ashmore Park Shopping Parade in Griffith Drive Ashmore Park
The Pheasant Shopping Parade Wood end Road and Lower Prestwood Road.
The Shop in Wootton Ave Linthouse Estate
This single shop does a sterling job in supplying the Linthouse Estate! So come on folks. make an effort to give some of your trade to our Local Shop Keepers.
