Rugeley has missed out on so much and the town has been left to run down in many ways. There now seems an uplift in the town's fortunes thanks to a series of developments that should get the town and it's businesses buzzing once more.
The news that Amazon are to take the large unit off Power Station Road should mean emplyment for some 600 - 900 people. The redevelopment of the Pear Tree pub site will also bring jobs and new outlets on what was a derelict site. McDonalds may also be arriving in Rugeley following an application for a 'restaurant' on Power Station Road (I am more a McDonalds hater but I can see some benefits). The confirmation of Tescos (love'em or hate 'em) will also mean jobs and development of a poor looking site.
There is one Rugeley business that has seen many changes in the town, but has stayed, employed local people and is proud of it's Rugeley heritage. Trent Valley Tyres has been providing tyres throughout Rugeley and beyond for 40 years this year. This is a great testiment to their dedication to great service and competitive pricing.
Here's to the new brighter looking period for Rugeley and another 40 years for Trent Valley Tyres!
