Curry's Bull Ring Store

#1 by Sheldonboy , Tue Jun 01, 2010 5:51 am

I noticed on Saturday that the Curry's shop in the Bull Ring is closing down. Now this is only my guesswork but The site of the Big W shop on the Coventry road is being developed and fitted out. This is a massive shop by the Blues Ground. It would take a big firm like Curry's to fill and afford it. I wonder...........

Interesting thought Graham, but is that the only vacant Woolworths left ?.
Could it be the only available one nearest city centre, here in Brighton they've been absorbed by Comet.
Incidently I used to go out with a girl that worked in that Woolworths, named Pat, lived in Duncroft Rd.

No John there are other Woolies shops still vacant but this one is massive in comparison. It would take a big business to fill it if it wasn't split.

I think a lot of these empty stores should be converted to mini-markets where independant traders who can't afford premises of their own
can share the space with other traders and give us a greater selection of goods other than the usual high street shops.
I suppose the block would be put on it though in the case of butchers, greengrocers, or any food related items,(H and S you know).

Very good idea John, as we know not all small traders stay small.

John

I used to go out with a girl called Pat who worked in Woolworths in the Bullring. Mind you I think I went out with most of the girls who worked there.

My mistake I thought you wrote that you used to Pat the girls in Woolies,
