Cockermouth bounces back as more shops head to Main Street

MORE Cockermouth shops are returning, new shops are planning to open and some are expanding as the town’s flood recovery continues.

Cockermouth Wool Shop moved back on to the town’s Main Street last Friday in a new shop behind Belvoir and the old Marmaris restaurant.

Owner Margaret Moffat, said: “I didn’t really want to go back to the old shop because I have bad memories of the floods. It’s lovely to have my own shop again.”

Formerly known as Knitting Fever, the shop had been based in Mitchell’s Retail Mart since February and was previously at the Market Place end of Main Street.

Strolling4Shoes has applied to Allerdale council for planning permission to move into bigger premises at the old Marmaris restaurant, on the corner of Main Street and Station Street.

Another planning application has been submitted to Allerdale council for a change of use and new shop front and flat entrance to the former Blockbuster store at 70 Main Street.

The application proposes to change the use of the building from retail space to a cafe or restaurant space.

Jacy’s Lingerie is still out of its original premises in Market Place but is hoping to get back in within the next month.

Owner Jan Mansergh said: “I am going to end up with a bigger shop so there will be more stock.”

My Party Angel, previously in Mitchell’s after relocating from Carlisle, will move to Main Street in the next month.

Owner Lorraine Anderson-Cole has decided to continue trading from premises in the town rather than via the internet and the party supplies business will be combined with a traditional sweet shop, My Sweet Angel.

She will continue her new home nursing business, My Home Angel.

The Spice Club on Main Street is being fitted out and bosses hope it will be open by the end of next month.
