    I am pleased Eldon Square Clintons is saved. Every time I have been there the staff have all been incredibly pleasant, friendly and helpful. It’s very refreshing because I don’t know of any other company that offers consistent customer service of such a good standard. Even the likes of M&S or John Lewis don’t come close.

    If Clinton’s and Game have closed one of their two stores in the Metrocentre then I presume this answers your question, they are simply getting rid of duplication rather than a deeper issue of rent and footfall problems.

However, two different sources have pinpointed the location to opposite today’s That’s Entertainment, in what are now two of the shopping centre’s very few empty units (one the inevitable ex-Birthdays).
