I pop in to town from time to time, every week or two. I have noticed a few shops that have closed down, some for a long time now. But today it really hit me just how many are now closed, and have not been replaced with new businesses.
Walking in to Princess Square, 6 of the first 8 shops are empty. The high street is full of empty shops. I noticed today that the Thornton's chocolate stand has gone. Indeed, several of the shops I planned to visit have gone. I am pleased to see Bracknell Cycles have only moved, not closed down.
But the overall impression is that it is turning in to a ghost town. Scary.
