Is there a possibility to stop these chains as they ruin the picture of the city. All the small shops vanish and in the meantime a lot of streets look similar.
I for myself refuse to go to any take-away or restaurant which is a chain as I would like that small business have the chance to stay in the area.
How others see this?
PS. Please ignore my spelling mistakes, I am still fighting with the English writing.
