Long Eaton High Street takes more shop closure hits

You will all no doubt be aware that Peacocks Group is under Administration and that KPMG who are handling the situation are seeking buyers for the chain. While I hope this is successful and saves the stores, it puts our High Street store in danger.
Long Eaton's branch of Superdrug to close in June this year
Following on from a lead I received yesterday, I contacted our Bon Marche store directly and was told that the store would not be closing, however "Sun", who have recently bought out the chain have confirmed that they will be closing approximately 160 stores throughout the country.
In more bad news, I have confirmed that Long Eaton's Superdrug store is due to close in June this year. The press office said that the nearest store to Long Eaton with a pharmacy will be in Beeston from that point onwards.
A little good news, I hope, is that the Deputy Manager at Burtons, also on the High Street, said rumours that the branch was to close were unfounded. Let's hope this is the case.
It would be such a shame to see our High Street die any more than it already has and I urge you to support the local retailers as much as possible.
