I seem to be taking photos of a lot of shop fronts recently. Here’s another one. This time it’s the shop next to the new Morrisons, near the corner with St James Ave, which will be a pop up shop for the next few months. The plan is to offer the shop at low cost to a range of people or groups to sell their products for a trial period. A competition has been run and decisions will be made next week. I believe the first group to take it on will be the winners of a Dragon’s Den type event at the nearby Westside Youth Centre. They will be selling urban clothes. Watch this blog for more news on this shop as we get it.
I think it’s a great idea to give local people and businesses a chance to try out their ideas at a low risk and bring something new and different to our high street.
