High Street
Above (TOP) is White Rose Centre, High Street, Rhyl. There, as the financial year draws to an end, the unit formerly occupied by Dr. China is closed and a new clothes/shoes shop named ‘Designer Outlet’ has opened where Contessa used to be. Clarks Shoes has moved from one unit to another and is now in a more prominent position. Mothercare has gone. The unit formerly occupied by Bay is closed. Boots the Opticians (not the chemist) has moved to 27 High Street where once was Dolland & Aitchison.

Compared with the main shopping precinct in other towns, the situation at White Rose Centre is not bad. Further down High Street, between Marks & Spencer and Bodycare there is a new bookshop ‘Bargain Book Time’.

The final photo above shows part of the unlovely medical centre being built on a corner of Elwy Street and West Kinmel Street. Oh well, at least they didn’t put it on the prom.
