whatever happened to the good old-fashioned newsagent that opened from 7-5 Monday to Saturday and closed at 2pm on a Sunday? In an area bursting with 24-hour 'convenience' stores, do we really need another? Why couldn't it be something a little more unique?
Ive used both the Long Lane and Snowsfield stores, coincidentally over the last couple of days. More utilitarian than aesthetically pleasing in both cases - they had what I wanted! If we dont need either, then Im sure market forces will wield their sythes.
