The former Motor World unit is to become a pop-up shop before the Crosspool chemist moves in next year.

Priceless is due to open on Wednesday 14 October. Like its sister shop in Crookes, it’ll sell halloween and Christmas goods as well as fireworks.

Longer term, Greencross Chemist – currently based on Sandygate Road – is expected to move in.

The premesis on Lydgate Lane has been empty since March 2015 when Motor World closed.

Thieves steal wood from scout bonfire

A local scout and cub group was victim to wood thieves last weekend.

Timber pallets were delivered to Stephen Hill Scout Group last Friday afternoon in preparation for their fundraising bonfire on Sunday night in Calver Field, off Hagg Lane.

But between Friday and Sunday the wood went missing, forcing organisers to go ahead with fireworks but no bonfire.

The annual event raises valuable funds for the group.
