It is rumored that Booths Supermarket plan to open a new store on Liverpool Road, Birkdale, Southport.

Booths would not comment on the matter but OTS understands that if the new build went ahead it would mean knocking down Liverpool Road Methodist Church, two houses, a business, and also Birkdale Library.


The library would have an option of relocating to the first floor of the new supermarket building.
