Its ok Madger. Sorry if i'm not making myself clear. What i mean is that a lot of people, in the forum complain alot with the current shops/restaurants we have already and want other types of store/cusine here but they never support them on a regular or are never happy.
For example, lets say we had a local Mexican/South American restaurant take over, it'll be great for a while but after a couple of years later the novelty/hype will die down and it'll struggle.. I rememebr when we used to have a Mexican place right wher the italian place used to be (Olivelli i think) and that was almost always empty every week! No independant or family run place can survive for 2-3 years of business. Same with the Greek restaurant near ED Station that used to be a Thai place.
I personally thing it'll be great to have some sort of sporting goods shop like a JD sports, Sports Direct, Footlocker... thats something that i think would be longlasting, its a chain that would do well as many ED and surrounding locals would go to on a regular basis and its something we don't have.
