Pudsey residents have given a mixed reaction to news that bargain food shop Fultons Foods will be moving to the town.
As reported yesterday, the Yorkshire-based company will be taking over the former Santander Bank building on Church Lane.
Reaction on social media has been mixed, with some favouring coffee shops over a frozen food store …
Some places get Waitrose but we get Fultons. I've never been less excited about an opening; it's like Pudsey doesn't have aspirations

While others have been more positive…
Great news for the people who shop in Pudsey, not everyone can get to the Owlcoates centre. #shoplocal

Mark Smith added on Facebook:
“Bloody moaning set of sods – it could be worse, it could be a nightclub. I think Fultons will be good for Pudsey – not everybody can afford Sainsbury’s. I’ll be using it.”
What do you think? Have your say in our fun poll below…
Would have preffered a classy restaurant or delicatessen, however it’s better than another charity shop but definitely not the way Pudsey ought to be heading…If Bramley shop is anything to go by its stocked high and not at all attractive…
People forget that not everyone can afford a Sainsbury’s or a posh restaurant or delicatessen, as M Gregory suggests above.
My mum travels from Acres Hall estate to Owlcotes via foot and public transport just to find affordable food. She’s just turned 80 and thinks the opening of Fulton’s is the best thing to happen to Pudsey in years.
I can’t believe that this is the biggest issue facing Pudsey. Surely getting the market back to its former glory is the biggest priority?
I want to comment I’d love fultons to reopen somewhere In pudsey centre I used the fultons there a lot. Good value for money.
