Letter: Shopping - Keep the town centre unique

I'm afraid that I have to agree with Neil Anderson (Letters, March 3). Harrogate has indeed become a town of many charity shops.

Beulah Street, Harrogate.

I used to love all the independent shops around the town and on a lunchtime walk recently I soon became bored as there was nothing of interest to visit.

I loved clothes shopping and supporting independents. My two favourites The Nines and Valtiara could no longer continue due to high rents and rates.

Wetherby is now where my money is spent.

Let’s do something to resurrect the uniqueness of Harrogate and stop it looking like any other town anywhere in the UK.
