Does the car park actually belong to the Co-op?  I seem to remember there being some doubt about this before, when it was disputed that they could charge for parking.

What's the source on that? 6 weeks seems an awfully long time, and has the danger of people getting used to not shopping in Marple. Which is bad for all the businesses, not just ASDA.

If it's true that the Asda car park will be closed to the public then it may be that they need easy access for their teams of shopfitters etc. Shoppers will just have to park in one of the council car parks. They only ever seem to be full at Christmas. Or people could always walk.

I would expect Asda to introduce a charge for their car park anyway. Refundable after spending something like £5 in store. Afterall Asda will probably be considerably busier then the Co-op, so they'll need their car park for their customers, not for other local traders.

I think other businesses would do well in that time IF the car park was open. Looks a bit of a mean trick to close the carpark.

I was told it will have a small GEORGE clothing and an opticians.

Most supermarkets have their clothing range in anything larger than a convirnence store sized shop, so that makes  sense. But it'd be a squeeze to fit in an opticians as well.

Staff told by two different staff this morning .

Fair enough. But it's a pity about that car park as that is going to screw everyone else.

Re opens April as ASDA

April seems a long time for the store to be closed, it only took them 2 weeks to convert the store at Hazel Grove.
