The fight is on to save 83 jobs at Hoopers with the owners in talks with potential buyers for the Carlisle building.
Have your say
Well i have walked past the store many times but never actually been in it. It looked completely uninviting and very expensive. Unfortunately in this day and age its got to look CHEAP and TACKY because most people are skint and all the rest shop on the internet. Sadly its a sign of the times that we live in at the moment.
Carlisle is fast becoming a faceless clone, with chain stores and cheap discount retailers which can be found in any high street.
The closure of an 'upmarket' store, which perhaps eventually priced its merchandise out of the reach of most people in the Carlisle (and wider Cumbrian) area.
