Popped into Arding & Hobbs on Thursday, and ended up chatting to the store manager, who tells me that they’ve sold the part of the building closest to the cheapy shoe shop to…..
…. Sainsbury’s! Yay, a decent, relatively big store to fill the gap between Somerfield and M&S.
More high street changes on St John’s Road between Blacks and CarphoneWarehouse; the WorldChoice travel agents has closed, and the posters tell me that a Tony & Guy will be opening up there. That’s quite a smart chain for once, rather than another mobile phone shop, or a cheap clothes outlet.
