Iceland have confirmed that they are to move into the current Poundworld store in The Pavillion Centre.
Whilst an opening date has yet to be confirmed Iceland are expecting the new store to open early 2019.
Rumours have been circulating over who would move into the location once Poundworld closed.
Now confirmation has come through from Iceland which would make this the third store the brand has in the town.
Iceland were asked if any of the other sites would be closed as a result of the town centre opening but said that there were no plans to close any stores here.
Can you help save Maggy’s from closing?
Since opening its doors back in June ’18 Maggy’s has grown hugely in popularity, but after planning officers refused to allow them to stay they are unable to find anywhere else to move to and may have to close.
The affordable food store is in a quandary. It’s success has meant that the store should be able to grow and continue to support the local community.
But ever since Maggy’s opened its doors it has encountered problems with the planning officers who say that the store does not meet the category of business it needs to be in the location it is.
This has caused a real problem for the store and ever since this was discovered they have tried to find a solution with Crawley Council about what they are to do.
Now with only weeks left before the deadline when they have to move out they still have been unable to find a suitable venue that is affordable for them.
Now Maggies and owner Ziggy are desperate for help in finding somewhere they can move to but that is also easy for local people to reach.
If somewhere is not found within weeks then the unthinkable will have to happen and Maggy’s could be no more.
