Why can't we have cheaper shops?

First published in Letters

PLEASE can someone give the shoppers of Salisbury some good answers on why on earth we can’t have some new, cheaper shops?

Everyone I talk to wants to have a Primark, Wilkinsons or Peacocks.

Most towns you go to nowadays have all three. When asked if we have them we have to say “no” even though those three shops would do so well here.

Maybe nobody wants to give the shoppers of Salisbury any answers.

I would love to have a Wikinsons here, and especially a Range. We have room for a Range so they cant say there isn't any. Eg: Next to Waitrose where Currys used to be, or next to the big Tesco where Staples (even that got the chop) used to be. Salisbury must be one of the few cities not to have these shops. We don't need any more stupid cafe's or resturants, we have too many already.

This is why people choose Bournemouth, Basingstoke or Southampton to go shopping because these are will you will find Wilko's etc.. Here the rent is horrendously high, so no wonder shops don't stay long., the greediness will be the cites downfall.
