AS most towns are struggling to fill empty premises, Brighouse appears to be thriving.
Several new businesses have opened in the town centre over the last few months. From beauticians to clothes shops and even a new car garage have opened their doors.
A report from the British Retail Consortium has found that the number of empty shops on the UK’s high streets has hit the highest level since its survey began in July 2011. The town centre vacancy rate is now 11.3 per cent.
