Huddersfield food shoppers have previously complained about the reduced number of food stores in the town centre.

In September shoppers were in despair at the announced closure of Farmfoods in Market Street and Iceland in Trinity Street, both in Huddersfield town centre. Shoppers said they found the locations of both stores convenient as they are both close to the bus station.

Earlier this year the Bargain Food Store opened in New Street, Huddersfield. The shop describes itself as specialising in 'clearance wholesale' and has stores across the UK.
