Asda signage application: http://interactive.stockport.gov.uk/edrms/onlinemvm/getimage.asp?DocumentNumber=233242

No radical change whatsoever, especially with both using a bright green brand.

You cannot buy everything you need in Marple, especially when you work and all the shops are closed ! ???
Even when they are open

Agreed Razzle many many local traders are just not willing to serve their local market and then complain when local people are unable to support them. Perhaps Claudo should run classes to Marple traders about how to provide good European customer service

Maybe, but you can buy everything you NEED in Marple - at least, I can and have done during the last few weeks - but then I have done anyway since I came back to live in Marple several years ago.

Well I expect you will be able to get even more when ASDA open their "village" store

Trouble is, one person's "want" is another person's "need". A bit like owning a horse, I would suppose?
Well, I shop for my horse in Marple, too. Goyt Mill stocks everything Horse and I "need" at very reasonable prices.

I was shopping in Marple yesterday and asked one independent shopkeeper whether the closure of the Co-op had affected trade in the village and she said that her shop had been busier than when the Co-op was open. Obviously, one swallow does not a summer make but it would be good if all the shops in the village were to benefit as this one is.

It looks as though Merpuddlians are learning and hopefully will remain loyal to the small shops that they are discovering thanks to the "inconvenience" of the absence of the Co-op.

If I do my shopping at ASDA Hazel Grove do I have to carry the shopping from Marple centre all the way back to either Marple College if the bus is going via Hawk Green or from Rose Hill station if the bus is going via Dan Bank and then walk from the bus stop. You would never believe it but some people have to catch a bus back from the shops if they are really loaded up and then carry their shopping from the bus stop!
If your a pensioner you can use the 394 for free any day that goes your way you don't have to use Asdas bus .if you want the times just ask will post on here .dont see what the problem is .theres plenty of other alternatives using public transport .

What ASDA should have done is offer free delivery on internet shopping to Marple postcodes until the new store opens. A free bus to the Hazel Grove store sounds like a complete faff.
