From next week, due to platform extensions at the station my shop is at, trains won't be stopping for three weeks. Passing Footfall will drop from 30/40 thousand a day, to zero. Revenue will drop by about 70%, possibly.. My shop is Fairly stocked, and I really have to watch spending. But I really, really want to do some ordering. But I know I mustn't. I getting the shakes just looking at catalogues and websites.
Role on September.

Building work well underway. Despite customers having to go past these signs, and the black Knight, to get to my shop at platform 7/8, they are still coming. Just no passing trade. Two types, old school, who've used me in the past or been recommended me, or new school, who've just googled me.I'm Really catching up on my Netflix.
