    Well i work at Matalan, and i went to hand my notice in today as i am moving to Preston (IQ Kopa) in September, so obviously can't stay working there. Thing is my manager has offered me a transfer to a Matalan that is apparently in Preston. What i wanted to know is, is the Matalan anywhere near where i will be living? And is it easily accesible by bus etc?
    Thanks

    The Matalan in Preston is actually in Bamber Bridge. It is a stones throw from the motorway junction - Junction 29 on the M6, or the end of the M65.

    No idea about buses, but suspect there will be at bit of a walk from the nearest stop - its behind the Sainsbury's at the edge of Bamber Bridge.

    Aww how sweet of you is that!
    It looks pretty far to say how zoomed out it is :/
    I don't know whether to just turn down the transfer and try find a new job myself.

    Hi, I've lived in Preston for 19 years so I should be able to help.

    Yep, the Matalan is quite a way out. As mentioned above, it's behind the Sainsbury's in Bamber Bridge. I'd say it's about 3 to 4 miles from the university. To get there the best way is to catch the 111 or the 113 from the bus station in time. Not the most regular buses on the planet but not to bad either. Probs at least every half an hour.
