MARLOW High Street will soon have two new additions after a pair of national retailers announced plans to open up stores over the next few weeks.

Clothing chain Jigsaw have snapped up the vacant space on the High Street left by Leightons Opticians and is set to open its doors on March 5.

And French bistro chain Cote Brasserie has confirmed it will launch its 48th cafe/restaurant in the spring, with the exact location yet to be announced.

Jigsaw, which will offer a range of womenswear and accessories, was keen to take up the vacancy in what was once the post office after scouring the High Street for a suitable location.

Spokesman Roz Mayers said: "Jigsaw have been looking for a shop in Marlow for some time as it is such a great area for our brand and the high street is really quite unique.

"Also the free 1hr parking will be a real boon with our popular click and collect service."

The opening of Cote, which offers what it calls "reasonably priced" French bistro cooking, will create around 40 jobs.

The chain will hold a rectuitment drive art Marlow’s Crowne Plaza Hotel on Friday, March 7 between 2pm and 6pm, looking for everything from chefs to front of house staff.

Harald Samuelsson, Cote joint managing director, said: "We are very much looking forward to opening up our new restaurant in the heart of Marlow and introducing our unique dining experience to the town.

"It is a vibrant place with huge economic potential."

There's also two hour free parking bays by Higginson Park.

Still, never let the facts get in the way of a good moan!

You could do what people do in Wycombe, park on the double yellow lines and the raised parking areas along-side the road - footpaths I believe they're called, though god knows why!!

Does Marlow need yet another eaterie, or even more of the clothes which ordinary folk can't afford? Variety would be more helpful for the residents, who don't need parking, free or otherwise.

If people can't afford it they won't don't shop there. Don't complain about these shops as they wouldn't open if they didn't think the market existed. If it doesn't, they'll shop.

I know the high street will allow for a limited time, but not endless.

The scum the council hired have written loads of tickets, photograph cars and put chalk marks on tyres. Watch em, they're already going crazy fining folks on side streets.

What? Fining drivers who've breached parking regulations whilst the rest of us law abiding citizens are left unaffected?

Marlow Parking, here goes.
It’s about time something was done about the on street parking in and around the town, a lot of the side streets have been reduced to single track roads due to parked vehicles, why do people buy houses with no off road parking when owning multiple vehicles?
Parking has become a problem on main roads in and out of the town too, Dean street for example again reduced to a single track road with cars parked half on the pavement half in the road on both sides, vehicles parking on what was grass verges now turned into quagmires, traffic congestion pretty much daily and only a question of time until Little Marlow Road and Wycombe Road suffer the same fate. What do you think should be done?
