Changes at Parkgate park

JOBS have been lost at Parkgate’s clothing chain outlet Peacocks, after the store was not included within a buyout deal.

Parkgate was one of 224 stores with over 3,000 redundancies that were not included in a handover to the Edinburgh Woollen Mill Group.

But brighter news is on the way as Poundland and Kiddicare prepare to move in with new job opportunities. Kiddicare will take over the unit formerly occupied by Bestbuy.
