I'd love it to be a decent shop that lewes actually needs, not another café or antiques shop. I'd rather it wasn't Ann summers for that matter either! How about a nice card shop?? Ha

I would like a pound shop somewhere in Lewes, but Clintons is not the right place for it. How about a computer shop?

Parking Shop needing larger premises. With rents in that part of town and bearing in mind it's a big unit it will be a national chain selling clothes. Webbo could organize a sweep stake, a cup of coffee for the winner. I'm losing the plot.

A shop that is not masquerading as an antique / coffee shop / flower shop!

Ive heard that the sandwich shop at the top of station street is shutting....which is a bit of a surprise as it's hardly ever open !!!! What shop right in the middle of a major commuter run to the station and too and from Priory school, shuts before the kids get out and don't open until the major rush of people have gone to work.
Find that rather strange !!!

I think Ducati Pete is right about it being a national chain, those rents are too high for any independents, but it won't be one of the biggies eg Next, River Island. There simply isn't enough footfall for the likes of them.
If it was further up the hill, I'd say high(ish) end clothes or a clothes shop a bit "lifestyle" like the ghastly White Stuff, but that wouldn't sit too well with being so near the bargain basement New Look and M & Co.
I'd like to see a Waterstones. They have one in Haywards Heath, and that's not massively bigger than Lewes. I bet the Lewes literati read more books per capita, too.

The parking shop should be sited just out of town; by the very nature of its function. It's "customers" will be those in cars and other vehicles, and need a space to park while transacting business there.

Perhaps Mr.Clegg could take the hypocritical Mr.Baker into partnership upon that person's inevitable demise.

Somewhere that sells AFFORDABLE clothes, like NEXT. I'm sick of shops where I need to take out a mortgage to buy a vest.

There used to be a Next in Lewes, Roly Mo, but it closed down. I daresay they didn't find it sufficiently lucrative.
Mind you, I'm not surprised. I bought 2 jumpers in the sale and they're both still going strong and showing negligible signs of wear, despite being at least 15 years old.

I remember the NEXT well (did my work experience there). I'm pretty sure it did well as it was the only chain store in Lewes at that time, selling clothes. It closed down after it flooded, unfortunately.

Please let it not be yet another charity shop..
What about a small BHS, or M & S, where you could buy useful things like socks and undercrackers.

Don't be silly TownFlyer, we can't POSSIBLY break the staus quo and have a shop most people can afford to shop in, why on earth would Lewes want that?
