McDonald’s on Paisley High Street is to close dealing a massive blow to Paisley.

The burger giant confirmed that they’re officially closing and the branch has not been making enough money.

Last week Thornton’s confirmed they are also closing.

McDonald’s have been in Paisley for more than 20 years in their prime location, the unit they rent is part of the Paisley Centre.

Bosses at McDonald’s confirmed that all staff will be offered posts at other branches.

    What a load of nonsense!!! Reverting the High Street back to vehicle use would NOT change the town or centre at all! In fact it would just be another street for the same selfish people to park illegally on for way over time allowed! or most of the spaces ( like everywhere else) would be given up to ‘blue badge owners’! Whats the point in allowing people to park on a street to shop, when there are few shops to go into anymore!!! No! People of Paisley need to be asking the Council WHY nothing constructive is being done to bring businesses BACK to the High Street and town centre!! It’s an utter disgrace. Huge amounts of money was wasted on dumb papier machė lions!!! Ridiculous! The Council allowed an unknown supermarket to occupy the old CO-OP store in the Piazza, a shop which was even more expensive than the CO-OP was!! And, unsurprisingly this didnt even last a year and in the space of weeks therefor 3 shops have closed on the High Street and centre, 2 of which have been in the town fir decades. Unbelievable that the Council and Paisley First have the cheek to still think Paisley has anything to offer for a 2021 BID!!!! Renfrewshire Council need to be brought to task fir ruining this town, it’s overdue!

    Maybe if the high street was open to traffic with parking allowed on one side for 30 mins with no return within an hour, there would be higher footfall. Rent and rate reduction would also help. The high street is desolate. I remember when it wasn’t like this.
