New businesses set to take over Crosspool’s empty shops

Peppermint Salon

The pair of empty shops in Crosspool shopping precinct on Sandygate Road are set to reopen in the coming weeks, with the former Co-op Travel shop now fitted out as Peppermint Salon.

We’ve also heard that the old World of Wine/Bargain Beers double unit could reopen as two businesses, a beer off licence and nail bar.

Crosspool off license ceases trading

The Crosspool branch of World of Wine/Bargain Booze ceased trading last weekend after nearly three years in the precinct.

It opened as usual on Saturday 31 August but was cleared out by Sunday morning on 1 September.

The off license opened in September 2010 following the closure of Oddbins in the same unit.

This leaves two shop units currently empty in the precinct, with Co-op Travel also shutting its Crosspool branch last month.

The Co-operative Travel in Crosspool is to close its doors for the final time on Thursday 15 August.

The closure is a consequence of the Co-operative Travel Thomas Cook partnership reorganisation.

Sadly, all staff at the Crosspool branch will be made redundant. Customer files will be transferred to the Hillsborough branch.
