Sykes – For sale but going nowhere!

2 May

The lovely people at Sykes have replied to our earlier post about it being for sale ( to reassure us of the future of Sykes;

“Hi,Just to let everyone in Reddish know Sykes Coffee Bar is NOT Closing down :0) The business is up for sale because we just don’t have the time to run it as we have other business commitments. We however want some to buy it and keep it as Sykes Coffee Bar as everyone keeps telling us they don’t want us to go. We are hoping the right person will come along and will be able to open 7 days a week and also make use of our alcohol license. So if you know anyone who fits the bill let them know but in the mean time were staying put and will be open 5 days a week Tuesday – Saturday 8.45am-4.30pm :0)
Many Thanks Sykes
You can follow us on Facebook and Twitter.Sorry our blog is no longer in action.”

As you might have seen from our original post, we really like Sykes. Yes, we think it would be great to rename it Psyche’s after the PJ and Duncan album and turn it into a 90’s themed cafe but that is a little unlikely.


However, it does pose a more serious point. Sykes is the only coffee shop/cafe bar in the centre of Reddish. It has the potential to be a fantastic community hub that could appeal to both young mothers during the day and young professionals in the evening. Reddish needs something like this.

If you haven’t been, go and check it out. I’ll be popping in later today.
