Fashion store for former Helston estate agent's premises

Falmouth Packet: Fashion store for former Helston estate agent's premises Fashion store for former Helston estate agent's premises

An estate agency in Helston could become a shop selling ladies’ fashion.

Susan Fraser has applied for permission to change the use of a business in Meneage Street, believed to be the original site of the Mather Partnership before it relocated to larger premises up the road, into an A1 shop.

Neighbours have until June 11 to give their opinion before Cornwall Council’s planning department makes its decision.

It would be good to have another empty shop filled. I see no reason for Cornwall Council to decline the application.

In the town M&CO sell men's and women's clothes, Peacocks sells men and women's clothes, so does the factory shop, out of town Tescos and Sainsburys sell men and womens clothes and Cornwall farmers, so where are all these other shops for women? Just wondering.

Could we not have a better picture of Helston town centre with a few more people in it.
This is great news and with the current conditions quite brave.

Completely agree with you, Ron.

If it goes ahead I will have a look in it.

I wouldn't know, I do not shop in Tescos. However, I do shop in the charity shops for a variety of things, and generally speaking most things are good quality. I have just rescued a teddy bear from one charity shop in Helston this morning!

If you care to read my post very carefully, I did not say that I shop in Tesco.

From time to time, I visit Tesco to look around the shop, take notice of what they are selling etc. Also note the fact that they seem to be a lot more expensive than Asda for eg

As for mens clothing, I much prefer to support local charity shops, than line the pockets of Tesco and their shareholders.

I did read your post carefully, but silly me, I forgot about those people like you that have time to wander round Tescos and Azdas just to check out the prices, without shopping in there. I know people that own independent shops sometimes do that to check out the competition, but normally they just check out the prices on line!

"believed to be..." Was that "before records began"?
