How is business doing in Barnsley?
As mentioned previously, Barnsley was a coal mining town until the national decline of the industry in the 1950s. It was also a hub for linen making companies and glass making, although only the glass making tradition has survived. As the area has had to diversify in terms of business, Barnsley is now home to online fashion retailer ASOS, Premier food bakery and Symphony Kitchens. There are a number of double glazing manufacturers and food producers and these types of businesses tend to be situated in industrial parks located on the periphery of Barnsley. Business within the main town centre is moving towards more service based activity.
