Subway closes in Tangmere Square

THE FAST FOOD OUTLET Subway in Tangmere Square, Castle Vale, closed down at the weekend. It had been open for fewer than nine months after new owners had taken on the franchise.
The Tangmere Square Subway originally opened in December 2007, but closed down after 18 months because of financial difficulties.
The outlet remained empty for a further year until new managers took over the restaurant towards the end of June 2010.
The Subway saga illustrates the difficulties faced by small local businesses in the current prolonged economic downturn.
