new card store hi does any body know when the new card shop is opening in the old millets store? Tweet Comments Showing 5 of 5 Doonebabe 6 months ago Didnt know one was. I dont think we need another one so close to the Card Factory nr W.H. Smiths (who btw offer some lovely cards @ very reasonable prices)! The one opposite in the old Radio Rentals shop didnt last long before they closed & of course Clinton Cards on the corner have sadly gone so, NO dont think it will pay, it is in a too close proximity. Viv 6 months ago It's probably taking advantage of the time of year and will have loads of Christmas cards, calendars etc. and won't stay open for long.I really miss Clintons. I never seem to find what I'm looking for in the Card Factory and although I like WH Smith, I really resent having to pay for a bag to put my card in (tight, I know but it's the principle). I always take shopping bags when I shop but paper items need a separate bag. Rosemary O 6 months ago You may be right Viv, but they have done a fairly good shop fit there. Business rates being what they are, you'd have to sell a heck of a lot of cards to keep a shop going though . . . . I'm with HomeMade in Exmouth Doonebabe 6 months ago Hi Rosemary i think ur right the business rates are sky high there so u would have to make a vast turnover to succeed there permanently, temporary may be ok, but, really cannot seeing it paying but, good luck to them if they are prepared to take the challenge & risk!! Annalease T 5 months, 4 weeks ago I totally agree about rates, my husband has just relocated his shop from church street to the parade, for better location but now have to pay rates.
