Business owners cannot complain about lack of business when they present such an unpleasant appearance to their prospective customers.
Although their main frontage is on the opposite side on Northgate, these shop frontages are in full view of all visitors to the market. The pavement is also in permanent use to store their waste bins.
There is no doubt a problem for the business owners - but that simply means that they should be looking for the right solution and leaving things as they are is not the right solution!
