Ironically, I cannot see Elvery’s surviving out there on the prairie – perhaps they will, but thus far Atlantic & PC World don’t appear to be doing overly well. Maybe they just need to get established – Harvey Norman is doing a bomb – why is beyond me at those prices…

Places like Franks are moving out not just because of rents, but also for easier access.
That company in particular spent a fortune only fairly recently on a carpet showroom to the rear of their store in the heart of the Georgian town, yet have moved out to the ‘by-pass’ anyway. And it’s not as if it’s to make it easier to lug stuff home – most carpets & furniture sold are delivered anyway! It’s just so people can sail up in their cars. The fact they’re now only a couple of minutes from smug nouveaux riche Blackrock is no coincidence either 🙂
