We need these budget shops

I wholeheartedly agree with the two letters from Avril Simpson and Hannah Wrigley re Poundworld. We do need these budget shops in the austere times we are going through because as Avril Simpson says not all of us are well off.

Since the closure of Woolworths and Yorkshire trading? (the shop where M & Co is situated.)we have had nothing to replace them and like Harrogate we do need shops like those.

There are plenty of empty shops in Knaresborough especially on the High Street which could accommodate these businesses.

At the moment they are an eyesore to both locals and visitors alike.

So come on Knaresborough Councillors use your clout with Harrogate Council to facilitate this need.
