Of all the types of stores we need around here, we don't need another sodding chemist. There are more than enough stores within spitting distance of the town center where I can purchase shampoo and other such essentials. I hope this new one goes out of business.

Then maybe we could get a book store, or somewhere that sells toys. There's just so many different types of stores that we don't have. At least the other new one appears to be a clothing store, although I've never heard of the chain so I'm guessing it'll be a bit crap.


We are mostly agreeing. There are some stores that I don't think we need though and some we do on your list.

The music store is one we do need. Given the state of the place, it's little wonder it closed down though. That whole row is in a pretty shabby state of repair. It's a good thing they've started rebuilding the far end.

The specialised food stores I don't think we need as Tescos provides everything they do. I think the baker's attempt to muscle in on Mario's business was doomed to fail - Mario's has a very loyal following and was a whole lot cheaper and better quality. I think it'd be cool if Mario's moved in there cos they could do with having more room.

The Sci-Fi store is one of many niche stores that was just in the wrong place to ever do well. I'm surprised it lasted as long as it did. The cyber cafes were utter failures. The various niche stores on the corner opposite The Crown have always been really daft ideas. Like a 2nd hand computer store - why did anyone think they could sell 2nd hand computers that couldn't run any of the software people would want to run. Sure they could run a word processor, but that doesn't help if someone sends you a file.

Mostly I'm just saying that we need more of the basic types of stores (music, books etc) that aren't covered by other places in town.
