Yep it was cos there used to be equipment left outside .Then this appeared.It was a similar thing to Beacon opp.There was an issue over someone wbo worked there.

Its closing though could have been funding for this type of work. There was also another operation in napier st at the old st pauls mission.Thats now  closed as well..

Ive never seen anyone going into the Honest library . HONESTLY!

Been to lpool and went into M&S.Its being done on outside.

INSIDE ITS A CHAOTIC PLACE.IT LOOKED LIKE A CHARITY SHOP! Bet ours in St.helens will for time to its xfer be like that as well?

Well phyll were our son lives on usa west coast,prices are rising and tech booming but shops in mall?Well he says the runners are using the long avenues to run round!! Bet its packed with runners over FALL AND WINTER!!

Perhaps if this is now a common usa phenomena we could as with lotsa ideas take it on board  on some of our locations like trafford centre etc

I appreciate people do have mobility issues.However some are complaining already before its even there,about limited parking RIGHT OUTSIDE. Maybe we will have to read the SMALL PRINT ON THE PARKING NOTICES ALREADY THERE NEARBY B& Q? just in case EACH BIT IS A SEPARATE PARKING AREA.Especially if you want to use the CAFE AT M&S as well as shopping?

New shop will also effect M S workers,how can they park all day,no other parking nearby.

I don't know how true (perhaps @joe90 has heard something) but i've been told that the footbridge is being replaced with another before christmas.

There is a picture on here with a 'Sold' sign up but now it's been removed.

I don't know if it's due to pulling out or they have taken it down.
