The other half of the old Boots on the corner of Wilmslow Road and School Lane has finally be filled. Dave Pluck Bookmakers opened its door just in time to take bets for the Grand National.
The prominent location is sure to take a chunk of business from the two existing bookmakers that already grace Didsbury Village.
The general reaction to the business and location is neutral although the colour of the shop has raised a few eyebrows. In the past bookmakers were not in prominent location and were were never bright red.
