Despite the recession and the likelihood of a double dip recession the retail sector in Wrecsam, whilst not booming is certainly not in crisis either. Amongst the shops opening is a Ballgown shop in Eagles Meadow (facing Yorke Street), this is a North Wales based company from Conwy. The other side of Eagles Meadow facing the Mecca on Smithfield Road, will be a Gents Barbers with a bar which will be open 7/7. Next door to NEXT there will be a fitted Bathrooms, Bedrooms and Kitchen shop, there is also a vacant shop opposite the footbridge on EM being occupied but I've no idea what at present.
Outside Eagles Meadow complex, Dragon DVD's have moved to Henblas Street and there is a new Fish stall in the Butcher's Market replacing Tim's. Other shops relocating to bigger premises are Vostro Cameras to by the Bus Station; Capture Photography from Henblas Street to Charles Street and Color Supplies moving to the old MFI store in Mount Street Retail Park. There are also several temporary or 'pop up leases' on vacant property which we have every year.
I wish them all every success and I'm also grateful to Isobel, Colin and the Town Centre team for their efforts.
