PLANS to transform an iconic city centre building into an interior showroom have been submitted to Herefordshire Council for approval.

Martin Pearson bought Hereford Farmers' Club last year and plans to transform it into an interior showroom for his furniture, fabrics and flooring business Simply Stunning.

Mr Pearson is asking for permission to conduct various internal and external works and also to put up three fascia signs.

The new showroom will feature gifts, furniture and fabrics as well as a coffee shop.

Has long as it's being used then it's (hopefully) being looked after
Buildings like this should be kept for future generations to admire.

Oh sweet Jesus. Please refuse this application.
Simply Stunning is a most preposterous misnomer.
This along with Home Bargains is part of HEREford's somnambulation into tawdriness and waste.
The only beneficiaries of this new retail environment will be the landfill operators as the bins fill to overflowing with gaudy plastic items broken within a day or two.

Folk moan about all the empty shops in the City then when an empty building is brought back into use they moan its not the right shop. surely its better to have it in use keeping it maintained and paying taxes than being empty and falling into disrepair.
Good luck Mr Pearson I sincerely hope it works out for you.
