On Thursday, Leeds United announced on the website that a 'pop up' shop is to be opened in Trinity Walk, the new shopping centre in Leeds before the official start of the 2013/14 season on August the 3rd.
This is another welcome boost to re- engage the people and fans in the city centre after a very long time away. The old store was at the bottom end of Leeds and is now a 'Wilko' store I think, I spent many hundreds of pounds in the shop, shirts, coats, souvenirs, calendars, I even bought some Leeds United rock for my son, it was 10p.
The best thing about having a store there was even casual trips to the city centre could be finished or started with a look around to see what was new or even better
reduced. Indeed you could buy your tickets there then look around a mini museum
showing various memorabilia of the 'Glory Years' and a massive team photo of 'O'Leary's babies' the 2000/01 Champions League line up. My son somewhere has a photo of himself alongside a certain Mr Smith.
These were good years for both the city and the club and it's to be hoped that the reintroduction of it brings back the better times for both the club and the already well respected city centre.
How things have changed since Mr Bates left.
On On On.
