Re: Re: Grafton Street, Dublin
I don’t know whether to post this here or in “Shopfront race to the bottom” thread but a bargain bookshop has recently opened its doors on what is our so-called premier shopping street. While I endorse cut-price bookshops (as an avid reader they make my habit easier to finance) I don’t think they belong on a street we should be building into an equal with Oxford St, 5th Avenue and the Champs ElysÃ©e etc. Furthermore, the actual shop sign is of the cut-price variety too. It looks like as if it is just a banner attached to the wall by string. It marks a new low for this erstwhile quality street.
