    Not sure how the closure of Homebase can be the Councils fault — they are not the landlord, they do not dictate the buying habits of potential customers. This is a commercial decision based on how the company can still remain in profit overall- when the number crunchers look over a business they are concerned with bottom line profits not about the location of a store.
    With other stores offering similar products it is the consumers who have indirectly closed Homebase not the Council.

    Funnily enough, I’m more annoyed about the Argos going, that was quite handy.

    I heard a whisper that a fencing company was taking over the site, can’t rememebr the name though, I’d never heard of it.

    I assume you are referring to a place where the local spice heads can fence their stolen goods and turn games consoles and mobile phones into lucrative drugs money. That would definitely be a fit for the local market.

    There’s been no mention of Argos closing.

    Argos is part of the same group as Homebase so I would think that Argos is only there because Homebase is, so I expect both will go, but hopefully not.

    Argos is part of Sainsburys, as was Homebase a long time ago. Many Sainsbury stores now have Argos actually in their building.

    Argos has been owned by Sainsbury’s since September 2016. They won’t be shutting it. But I wouldn’t be surprised if they either move into the Sainsbury’s site or perhaps expand into the Homebase building.

    I would not depend on B&q being there in the near future either! I know some people who have been made redundant from Wrexham B&Q in the last month or so.

    I was in B&Q the other day and one of the staff asked me if I wanted decking.

    Fortunately I got the first punch in.
