I have heard today that even for them the rates are too high and they are shutting up shop in high town.

Before you start to judge me...Step into my shoes and walk the life I'm living and if you get as far as I am...just maybe you will see how strong I really am.

I prefer Costa or Coffee 1 anyway however, not good news to have yet another empty shop and more people out of work.

Costa Coffee, I the Pavilion, The Old Market, Garrick Lane - Current rateable value £71,000 and pay £34,009 you need to sell 23 cups a day at £3.00.

 

Starbucks, 62 Commercial Road - Current rateable value £53,000. £25,387 to pay.

A revaluation of rateable values usually takes place every five years. The last was on 1 April 2010 and was based on the valuation date of 1 April 2008. From 1 April 2017 rateable values will be based on the valuation date of 1 April 2015. You can find more information and search for a property's rateable value on the Government's business rates pages.

To calculate a business rates bill, the rateable value is multiplied by the national multiplier. This is set by central government each year. For the financial year 2017/18 it is £0.479 pence in the pound. Therefore, if your rateable value is £52,000 your business rates bill would be £24,908.

I took these photographs this evening and notice that all the signage has already been removed and windows blacked out.

I thought this was a joke post or something, I’m shocked. I never went in there and prefer Costa anyway but always nice to have the option of going there. So now another empty building, loss of jobs and another lack of choice for Hereford. Shame. I hope they reopen as a concession somewhere.

Maybe these are some of the reasons behind these closures...

I have heard this was closed due to personal reasons and had nothing to do with trade or rates/rents

The RSPCA Charity shop moved to Broad St , near to Ask about 4 weeks ago ........ I understand the move was due to rent increases at Commercial Rd shop .

Swings n roundabouts really.Pretty sure I saw the shop next to golden galleon having a new sign put up
Also walking past the old TSB in St Peter's Sq it looks like some kind of women's fashion shop is about to open.
The Chadds store will be retail on ground floor with residential above.
Also Mobens in Commercial St,RSPCA shop in Commercial Rd,Vintage Couture,Le Madeline in Church St & bloom in St Owens St have all been let.
