Comment on Memo Club suspends trading, goes into voluntary administration. Town & Country to close tomorrow. by Ian.

Whilst acknowledging the role of anti-social behaviour and the threat of assault and / or vandalism on the decline in patronage at the Memo I think a further cause is the high cost of housing in the town.
Families paying a mortgage on a house bought in the last few years or paying exorbitant rent whilst also trying to save for a house purchase are cutting back on their discretionary spending. They are going to cut down on their spending and stay home.
Imagine the effect on the town if each family renting or buying had an extra two to three hundred dollars in their pockets to spend each week.
