Northampton town centre is so poor for shopping. Everyone I know shops in MK or Birmingham as Northampton is a waste of time. Empty shops, town looks dirty, people sleeping in tents on the Wellingborough Rd as it meets the town, people urinating in the streets. Who wants to see all that. It’s as if the town generally has had no real investment in 20-30 years, were now playing catch up, Corby has overtaken Northampton as a better place to shop and eat out. Rushden Lakes now houses all the shops you would need but it’s a drive out and that’s not good for people without cars. The town centre should be the heart of any town and we have lost ours.
