Walking along West Ealing Broadway this afternoon at the closed, boarded up shops I wonder if they will ever re-open?
Seba Electronics is a small family run business trading in the area for some 40 years; all their stock stolen in one night. Goldmine is the same. And whilst Blockbuster is no small independent it has a role to play on the corner of St James Avenue, an area well known to the Police for drug dealing. With Blockbuster on one corner and Farah now on the other this area was looking partially revitalised. There are also plans in place for a monthly craft market here starting in the Autumn, specifically placed in St James to help with this problem.
On a brighter note I went into Luckhurts and bought some fine quality meat at great prices – support your local traders in these difficult times.
