New Off Licence To Open On Ex Badlands Site

new spar aberystwythA new Spar convenience store with off licence has been given the go ahead by Ceredigion County Council.

A 342 signature petition and an objection from the police were not enough to prevent the new store getting the ok.

The store will be operated by Tates Ltd between 7am and 11pm.




The old Badlands store at the top of Great Darkgate Street has been empty for a number o months after the store relocated and it has been a great shame to see another empty building on the towns main street.


However, the location of the store around the town clock already suffers from anti social behaviour fuelled by the large number of clubs, bars and late night takeaways in the area and many local residents who signed the petition fear that this new off licence will merely make the problem worse.


Spar already owns a total of 3 stores in the town, including a 24 hour store with a large off licence selling a wide range of drinks. Is this new store just one too many, or is it better for the town to have more occupied shops and buildings, bringing in much needed revenue in rates and taxes?
