This week's editor's comment: We are lucky to have the Kingfisher on our doorstep

Ross Crawford 21st Nov, 2020

NEWS that Redditch is riding high as a resilient retail location is a welcome reminder of just how lucky we are to have the Kingfisher Shopping Centre and all the other businesses in the town on our doorstep.

Property Week’s Hot Retail Index 2020 puts the borough ahead of Worcester, Solihull, Brighton and Harrogate.

And really, the reason isn’t hard to find as Redditch is the pre-eminent shopping destination for not only north Worcestershire but also south Birmingham.

It deserves our support – shop local, support our town and together Redditch can bounce back stronger from this pandemic.
