IT appears Marks & Spencer have made their mind up to close their large store in Birkenhead centre.

This is the easiest store for people to visit who rely on public transport.

If local people feel that the loss of this amenity, in particular, the food hall and coffee shop, will be a big inconvenience, start writing to M&S now asking that they move this part of the store at least to one or more of the empty units in the town centre.
