The Liverpool Echo has the story – see link above

Now here’s a turn up for the books as a Netto Store is presently in the early stages of construction on the site of the old Maghull Library and Stafford Moreton Youth Centre in Maghull Town Centre.

Will another retailer step in an acquire the Maghull site ?

Why pull out when you are building stores?

Would Maghull welcome an Aldi? (Morrisons certainly would not!)

Answers? Well the Sainsbury’s retail group seem to be pulling all the strings.

    This area should be redeveloped to reintroduce the library and youth facilities. Netto could finance the construction seeing it is already being developed. This way the company could get good publicity in the area that it is interested in the region. It could still have a small shop that could give good vibes for the companies future. This way some of the jobs could be saved.. By showing an interest in the area and investing in the library and youth facilities it could build its reputation.

    An M+S food store would be nice instead of another cheap and nasty shop!!

    Let’s face it, Maghull Town Centre is a dog’s breakfast and has been since I was a lad (which would be some time ago). Tinkering about with the old library site is, well just that. My suggestion would be to relocate the police garage where it should be out by the M57/M58 interchange, demolish the “Square”, Morrisons, the old library and Post Office sites, acquire the petrol station (still known to me as “Kirby’s”) and preferably get rid of the housing on the corner of Eastway and the A59. Having demolished everything from the Square to Damfield Lane (ok, I’ve excused the Health Centre), there might be space to build a proper town centre with a full size modern supermarket and car parks that are accessible and not actually dangerous. (After all that is where the famous Uncle Albert broke his hip on the uneven surfaces). Don’t know what you’d all do for shops for a couple of years, but at least eventually you’d have a town centre that works and is suitable for the size of the community. Think BIG!
