A to let/for sale sign has gone up outside the former Motor World building on the Lydgate Lane/Manchester Road. Sandygate Road junction.

The brochure advertising the Crosspool property states that the shop is to let with or without the upper floor and the that the owners would be open to selling the whole premises.

In a recent Facebook post, residents were asked what sort of business they would like to replace Motor World. Ideas included a coffee shop, petrol station, wine bar, deli, hardware shop, micropub, another car spares shop, clothes shop, DIY store, solicitors office, charity shop and gym.

The Crosspool Motor World shop closed in March after going into administration.

The Motor World car parts and accessories retailer has gone into administration, resulting in closure of its Crosspool store.

If a buyer is found for the business some branches of Motor World could reopen, but it is not known if this would include the Crosspool shop.

In 2011, a planning application to convert Motor World into a convenience store was rejected.
