Re: Another pub closes

What has killed them all do you think? The smoking ban or the "Tesco Effect" ie cheap booze at home. It is so sad as I don't see they will re-open, the local pub was a British Institution.

Re: Another pub closes

i think its a mixture of them both ... the cheap booze at the supermarket means they can sit at home in comfort watching x factor or strictly and have their friends round and no need for a babysitter ... instead of going out to the pub ...

Re: Another pub closes

Its bad news about Madison's and the other pubs its just seems that Rawtenstall is being hit the hardest with the financial problems its just so easier to get out of Rawtenstall to other towns for cheaper options and more choice, Rawtenstall just isn't being used by local people as the shopping choice and its looking more like a ghost town every day.

You are better off having a night out in either Haslingden or Bacup at least they have open pubs.

Re: Another pub closes

It's not just here it's everywhere, for a young couple with kids it's a very expensive night out by the time you've got a baby sitter, taxis, drinks etc
