I visited this shop today- nice items and at good prices. Just what Wilmslow needed. Hopefully more interesting shops will open in Wilmslow- it will give more of an incentive for people to come and visit.

What's next after this and the discount greetings card shop - 'Pound' shops, Pawnbrokers and tattoo parlours!

@Barry Buxton, there has been a "tattoo parlour" on Hawthorn Lane for a couple of years.

Pete Taylor: I welcome further comment (although I don't see the relevance of something on Hawthorn Lane when we're looking at Grove Street) but please don't insult me by putting a Twitter @ in front of my name. Twitter has to be one of the scourges of modern society!
