Douglas Village Shopping Centre: Removal of Cars

Removal of cars from Douglas Village Shopping Centre car park
Removal of cars from Douglas Village Shopping Centre car park

Onlookers watch cars being removed from car park

I was reminded yesterday by this post on Reddit that the fire that gutted the carpark in Douglas Village Shopping Centre was on August 31st 2019. Also yesterday, the owners of the shopping centre announced that they are still on track to reopen in November.

I was in Douglas eight days after the fire and took some photos of the crane taking cars from the roof of the car park. I wonder if any of them were road worthy afterwards since the surface of the lower levels had buckled and folded with the heat of the flames. At the very least the smoke damage must have been awful.

Remember when Quinnsworth was the main tenant there and it had a huge flat car park in the 80s? These photos of Douglas in the 80s will bring back memories if you were around then.
