Something needs to be done by the Council to sort out the awful new off-licence that has opened in the old Blockbuster unit. The new (foreign) owners are clearly not in the least bit interested in presenting the shop in a way that is sympathetic to the environment around them. Tonight I noticed they had stuck one of those terrible flashing 'Open' signs in the window. Those signs should be banned, especially in a conservation area. Their windows are a mess, they have no signage up etc I'm hoping that the Council will get a grip of these jokers. Hopefully they won't last long anyway given that there are already 2 established off licences within 100mtrs. I certainly will never go in there!
Every business these days needs a flashing Open sign, it seems.
I wish the council (or anyone actually) would do something about the awful window-covering prints of booze bottles etc. I suspect the regulations haven't managed to keep up with advances in affordable large-format printing.
