Crave no more

Postby mdja » Tue 25 Feb, 2014 2:49 pm

Walked past Crave this morning and it's vanished. Apparently the place is being turned into Il Vino Deli.

and because another deli in the same shop as one that closed after 3 months is bound to thrive.

There is evidence that suggests that grouping the same sort of shops together attracts customers.

Think of Hatton Garden, Saville Row, China town etc.

Am not sure it applies to Hertford delis though ;)

By "these people" do you mean Il Vino opposite, who are rumoured to be opening the deli?

l mean anyone opening any type of business be it hair salons, coffee shops, delis or whatever. l would have thought that a diversity of shops would be more appealing. ;)

Apologies, I thought you meant this specific venture.

It certainly does appear that a lot of retail businesses open without a proper business plan or any research. I spoke to one new business owner recently who didn't know what a USP was.

What we need is one decent deli, instead of one average deli and a clutch of places that sell two or three types of vinegar.
