I heard the rumour on the weekend but there are no news articles about it that I can find. I know at least one of the shops has closed and made staff redundant, think it's the suit shop

we were told the majority of the shops have closed- one of them is moving to Ebbw Vale town - best to wait till someone announces it officially though. Such a shame for all the employees- and those of us who found it convenient to pop there for an hour - looks like we're only now beginning to see the fallout from "lockdown" - will be a scene repeated all over the country sadly. And of course Debenhams in Merthyr has also closed.

My daughter told me about a week ago that she heard that 10 shops weren't reopening including Claire's & Holland and Barrett. So if this is the case where does it leave the proposed plans for a leisure complex? There's supposed to be a zip wire going up there & the splash pool which was originally going up Bryn Bach Park?

The good thing to see (if any) from all this, is shops moving back into Ebbw town.

With the Splash pool that we should have been having, maybe we can get it back ?
