Can't believe McDs is closing on the High Street!! Given they've stayed round for a year+half of all the roadworks, and then go just after its all ready. I think there's also some formal reopening of the High Street at the end of the month too, so this wont boost morale for the pre-christmas relaunch. Wish the "Save the Car Park" brigade had spent their energies on a "Save the High Street" campaign instead, giving people reasons to actually visit. Hope that the High Street starts to offer more than "come here, buy stuff, go away" - which people can get cheaper online.
No bad thing McD is closing.Now maybe people will eat a more nutritious snack in one of the other eateries in the town. It will also be nice not to have all the McD litter everywhere.
I just hope they leave the place in a decent state... Any sign of the site being turned into anything? Or will it be just another boarded up shop?
I love how you all think so badly of McDonalds! Its been left in a really decent state cause I was one of the last working and cleaning! As for the litter problem that wasn't our fault either, its not our problem if anyone else decides they can't walk a few metres to a bin. Its a shame that its been closed down, but a lot of us are hoping that another one can open up again
just seen kingdom housing vans working at it now - turning it into flats for junkies...
Turning it into a soup kitchen would probably serve the area better, given that there a no real jobs in the town. Yes, Broonie served the town well as chancellor and Prime Minister. Brought plenty jobs to Scumfermline mind you!
It's a bit of a shock. I remember as a child we had to option of choosing between Burger King and McDonalds, in addition to being able to pop along to the ABC cinema. It was a great time to be a kid. I remember in my early teenage years, we spent a great deal of our weekends and pocket money down at McDonalds - it was a great place for young people to meet up.
The closure of McDonalds is yet another sad loss for the town - particularly for it's youth.
Love them or loathe them, McDonalds as a brand is a huge competitor and extremely popular. Their absence is yet a further indication of the decline of Kirkcaldy's amenities. I fail to see how the loss of jobs and the removal of an internationally successful recognised brand can be any good for the local economy and high street.
A real shame - even for those of you that don't like the brand!
What was it before it was McDonalds? Think McDs onlt opened in the early 80's
