The owner of this shop has done us a favour by taking over the abandoned Post Office and turning it into a graffiti free zone. Thank goodness for free enterprise and the ability for it to drive renewal.
The thing is though, I have no idea how long it will last. I have only ever seen one person in the shop (apart from the owner) and that appeared to be a mate having a chat. Every other business in the area always has at least one person in there when I walk past - someone else is always buying ham, steak, coffee, vegies, a haircut, drycleaning services etc. This place appears to be a commerce free zone, completely free of customers.
They might be a bit nuts (well, given the allergy thing, they are presumably totally nut free), but I hope they stick around since at least they keep the building occupied. Even if it is occupied by people with beards in Birkenstocks.
