We are always being told how 'market forces' will return the best solution to any given situation and I suspect there are many here who would argue in its favour, so can I ask how they apply to the retail position on Southwark St and its Locale
which, essentially empty after 6pm, currently has:
Pret a Manger
(formerly Taste - what happened there then?)
- a new concept in gastro dining apparently but of course, not and coming soon - hey guess what!? Another place to eat, Tortilla
and no doubt more to follow.
All of course part of regenerating a sense of local community as I recall the developer blurb stating in a trendy typeface.
Are these economics that make sense to anyone?!
