Hoopers to close Carlisle department store

One of Carlisle’s most iconic city centre department stores, Hoopers, is to close after it failed to turn around losses running into six figures.
Have your say
The scale of ambition for many seems to be Primark. If that doesn't say everything about modern-day Carlisle folk, I don't know what does.I'm moving.
The amount of snobbery on here towards Primark is unreal! These days people can't afford to shop in places like Hoopers (not that I would even if I had the money) so a Primark would be ideal. It would bring many more people to the area, so how can that be a bad thing? If you have the money for Hoopers, good for you but the reality is that most people don't.
This City is on a fast track to nowhere, sad to see.
