Food chains will not bring in shoppers

Have your say

Manor Drive


Interesting headline - ‘More big name retailers have been announced for the Broad Street Plaza’. Really? In my opinion in a town centre environment “retailers” are shopkeepers and not restaurants and bars.

Whilst I welcome more dining establishments in town providing a wider choice the fact remains as I and many other residents of Halifax have believed for a long time the true “big time retailers” have no interest whatsoever in opening stores in Halifax. The centre of Halifax is regretfully dead as far as retailing is concerned.

Four additional restaurants/food chains will not bring any more people into Halifax nor stop the flow of residents travelling out of town to do their shopping.
