I think most people agree that Lord street needs a big face lift and some ‘proper’ high street names and branded shops back. It is crying out for a John Lewis! People comment on how much the rates are but I don’t understand how ‘kids me quick’ shops full of cheap rubbish survive and make a living. We need some real retail units to set up, there’s a lot of money in Southport it just goes else where to spend it. Love the new cafe 92 degrees, more independents, brunch places and restaurants to open taking examples from Bold Street and Lark Lane in Liverpool. An Everyman or luxury cinema would be well suited around the Vincent and Atkinson. I also love the ideas people are posting about wellness we have a few gyms but they’re all cheap/no frills DW/ANytime etc. What about something along the lines of a Formby Hall with swimming facilities, indoor and outdoor relaxation, spas, classes etc. It would get the footfall especially from golfing clients as a hotel.
