New shop on Grosvenor Road
Originally there were a set of six shops on Grosvenor Road but by 2009 (see Hyde DP Volume 1) the middle shops had all been converted into housing. The hairdressers at the bottom end was converted into offices for a heating engineers by January 2013 and by Xmas 2013 even Yogi's convenience store at the top end had also closed and was being converted to residential use. Last year the offices at the bottom end were empty also (see Hyde DP Volume 2).
Now a new convenience store is opening up. To begin with it is mainly selling confectionary and ice-cream but hopes to expand into selling newspapers and magazines.
The shadow of the trees at Knott Fold are reaching across.
