Waterloo Mill closes and local press choose to not report on it

Sad to see the Waterloo Mill just off Union St & the Town Centre Metrolink route has closed. Metrolink has revitalised Oldham according to Labour Oldham yet a friend speaking to the owners of the Regatta outlet was told they were closing because the Metrolink has taken customers away. Contrary to the implied lie that Scoots Suits and Boots came to Oldham because of the Council’s £1,000,000 retail regeneration fund as reported in Oldham Council’s August edition of Borough Life they were originally supposed to move into the Waterloo Mill last August, as reported by The Manchester Evening News, before actually opening a shop on Yorkshire St instead. The Waterloo Mill story has gone unreported in the local press as have many other retail business closures in the Town Centre in 2014 including various businesses in The Spindles/Town Square & the cafe on Church Terrace.
