I couldn't give a stuff about M&S but I need a drive-thru Costa and Taco Bell!Natalie Graham
Why can’t it be IKEA instead.Jayne Hunt
So will the Cleveleys store be closing then!Lesley Steeden
M&S....really?? Could think of better stores to put there. We had one on Freeport and have the food store in Cleveleys!Jennie Beck
I hope that this all goes ahead however there already is an M&S in Blackpool and a M&S Foodhall in Cleveleys and they shut the discount one on Freeport so mehTes Snelson
Yeah great if you can drive ! What about those of us who can't?Wendy Norman
Shows how far behind Blackpool is only just getting a Taco Bell. Even Barnsley had one before Blackpool.Mark Miles
So what happened to the road layout as that was last thing that was stated as so much congestion so this was being discussed but no update was given to this.Jay Taylor
Be nice to have a Taco Bell, but don't visit the M&S in Blackpool, so wouldn't drive in bumper to bumper traffic for a store.Heidi Griffin
More traffic chaos then!Karl Hook
When is it even going to be built as this land has been standing empty for ages now.Timothy John Pugh-Scaife
