Before the arrival of the Cherry Tree Shopping Centre, Liscard was an outdoor shopping centre with many shops such as Marks & Spencer, Tesco, Woolworths, Thorntons, Halfords, Player Sports, Dixons, John Menzies and many more convenient shops which made Liscard an easy and enjoyable place to shop. Little did we know that the arrival of the Cherry Tree Shopping Centre, this was to become the beginning of the end for shopping in Liscard. Over the next 20 years major stores would be replaced by cheap discount stores with shoppers finding it more convenient to shop in Birkenhead or Liverpool. Take a step back in time and remember Liscard before the Cherry Tree Centre.
