Farewell Card Factory and Farmfoods  Kingstanding, North Birmingham
Farewell Card Factory and Farmfoods Kingstanding, North Birmingham
Farewell to Card Factory and Farmfoods for ever, at least on this site. Farmfoods finally shut their doors, with 50 % (per cent) reductions on stock, on Thursday 21st December this year, 2023. These two companies were the last with branches still open here. At one time the Kingstanding Precinct was a thriving place with every unit occupied, giving shoppers a wide choice of goods and services. Over the years trade gradually drifted away to other areas, leaving the Precinct increasingly empty. The site lies silent now, awaiting demolition and the arrival of Lidl Superstores to breathe new life into the place. Time photo taken 1.06 pm GMT (Greenwich Mean Time).
