Will whole lot go to Spytty

ANOTHER shop leaves the city centre.

The retailers blame the council, the council blames the recession. They are both to blame. When Llanwern, Whiteheads and other works were alive in Newport, Newport was awash with money. While the retailers and shopkeepers were counting their money, the city fathers under their noses were cutting the heart out of the city centre, by opening retail parks on the outskirts of the city. They ruined upstairs in the market and no one complained, like the city forefather who got rid of all the nice buildings and gave us boxes. Will there come a day when the market moves to Spytty and the Civic Centre to Cwmbran?

Out of town is where most people want to shop. Te High Street is not even open when most people finish work but Spytty Park is.

Whilst the High Strret carried on as if it were the 1950's the big stores identified what people wanted and provided it. It is the apathy of the High Street that lost them the businbess and they still fail to change.

The High streets laughingly claim they provide a beter service. I think they are deluded and out of touch with reality

Spytty a very easy stress free shopping, Newport town centre is a lot of stress, stuck on the bridge empty bus lane you can only use at certain times, the town like a lot around the country are at the end of their days,Spytty has good bus and plenty of taxis to get people there and back, Spytty really could do with a block of smaller unit's for the stuff you can't get at the bigger outlet's??.

Most people want to shop where the parking and shops ARE, it is just the fact the High Street and Town accommodates neither. I'd rather go to town than hike to Spytty every day.... I no longer have a choice. For the car poor, out of town is difficult since public transport is still aka 1905..... for some elderly it requires 4 bus trips to spytty and back, not a joke if you are carrying the weekly shopping or in this weather.

Rubbish. There are now 3 buses an hour to Spytty.

Please tells where these people live that require 3 buses to get there. Almost no one would require more than 2 buses

Lots of people would need to get a bus into town, then a bus out to Spytty & the same back again, hardly convenient. High street shops could open late if there was demand for it just as they do on out of town sites, but really, if you want to go shopping at 5:00PM you clearly haven't done a hard days work. I can't think of anything worse!
