Empty Falmouth shops start to fill

First published in Cornwall

Falmouth’s vibrant and busy events calendar is being credited for generating interest in almost all the empty shops within the town centre.

Town manager, Richard Gates, told town councillors that two new shops have just opened in town, lingerie retailer Love From Me in Church Street and card and gift shop, Puffin & Co is now trading in Arwenack Street. The new bar/restaurant The Stable is due to open later this summer and work continues on the former Bon Marche store in Market Street.

He said: “Virtually every vacant unit in town is being look at and this is very encouraging. It shows how things such as the vibrant events calendar make a massive difference.”

Well done to all those involved in the hard work and commitment in making Falmouth the success it is, and to the businessess for choosing Falmouth. Hopefully Helston will continue to attract businesses and continue with its success.
