Could bad publicity on Facebook finally be moving the Co-op to action on the Regal/old petrol station disaster zone? There's a major article in the Press and Journal today as a direct result of the Boycott the Nairn Co-op facebook campaign. Although many people contributing to that group are drawing back from a boycott that will affect jobs but there is still tangible anger being demonstrated.
A Co-op spokesperson is quoted in the P&J today:
"We are currently exploring a range of operations regarding the future of the buildings, including the sale of them."
"A quick solution cannot, however, be guaranteed in the current economic climate. But in the meantime the co-operative will carry out some cosmetic works to improve the appearance of the buildings."
Cosmetic works in the pipeline then and it will be interesting to see if the Co-op come forward quickly with more details. If you have a Facebook account you can contribute to the ongoing debate which the Co-op seem to be finally listening to.
