Place is in a sorry state However, I saw something that caused me to lose my shit, so to speak. Why, after it failing in Ayr before, are they opening 'The Rangers Store'???? It's shite like this that ruins local football teams. I've always backed my local team (I now reside in Troon and I occasionally appear at Portland park for the banter, whenever there's not a game on at Somerset.) Ayr town isn't even half as good as what it used to be but to be throwing up a Shop, for a football team located 30 miles away, to appease the local glory seekers has pissed me off! If we finally get promoted, I'm certain they'll turn up at Somerset, pretending they were Ayr fans the whole time. The Rangers shop failed before next to The Forum, back before the Sevco resurrection and when the forum had a physical presence With the brilliant position Ayr United are in now and how fantastic Cameron's and Club Shop are, under David Smith who has poured his heart and soul into the team, surely I'm not the only Ayr fan who is annoyed at this? I understand 'Bigger team' but ffs The high street is dead in every town in the UK, Ayr has been hit harder than some because it was the county capital almost and the majority of stores were there and serviced the towns round about. It will be interesting to see what plans are in place now the new leisure centre has been binned. Hopefully they will just bulldoze the Kyle centre, Hourstons and the Arran mall and turn it in to green space in the medium term rather than trying to lease it to vape shops for 3 months. Begs the question, why, if all major retailers are moving out of towns and online, would Rangers retail see opening a physical shop anywhere outside of Govan as a good business move? 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
