Could this be a sign that Ramsbottom is breaking away from its independent high street image?
The shop on Square Street which had previously been Velvet had been closed since Velvet moved to Bridge Street.
We’ve all been wondering what it would become and now the signs are up and the answer is Bang and Olufsen.
If you’re not familiar with the name, Bang and Olufsen are a high-end manufacturer of multimedia equipment such as Televisions and Hi-Fi Equipment.
I’d personally be interested to know if Bang and Olufsen are going to join the Business Group, I’m not sure how it works for them given they’re not independent.
What do you think about the thought of larger high street chains entering Ramsbottom? A welcome change from restaurants and coffee shops or a break from what keeps Ramsbottom high street unique?
