I wish that more high street stores would open up in Marple - as this is what is needs to encourage more people to shop in Marple. 

Your wish is granted - we're going to have an Asda!   ;D

Why shouldn't it? The one in Bramhall seems to do quite well.

I suspect that the council threatened the Co-op with a compulsory purchase if they continued to leave it standing empty.  Probably not for the first time - it may well have happened before, causing the Co-op to use it for a while as a showroom for microwaves and washing machines!   Local authorities do have the power to do that, I believe, although it's a power they don't like using, as it costs money, which is something councils don't have.   :-\

That's not quite true Dave, councils have loads of money, they just like to waste it on other things
