A woodford, opinion you have been warned.
A number of points for the discussion..........
1: Nearly all retail outlets are suffering greatly from online shopping, recently I was forced into online shopping for health reasons and I found I could get what I wanted delivered to my remote location a good deal cheaper and easier than from a local shop. Landlords REALLY need to get a grip on reality here. For instance a particular "cam clutch" bearing in Australia will cost you around 200 to 250 australian dollars, one can get the same bearing online in Britain and delivered to Aus for around 40 dollars.
2: on disablities,
In the past people with disabiities simply slowly faded away and ended up dieing in effect from boredom. With the VASTLY improved ways of getting around they can now readily particpate in society helping both them selves and many others along the way.
3: A factor effecting this is public transport in Melbourne is NOT that easy to figure out if one is NOT used to it, this is NOT helped by a good percentage of people will NOT walk more than 100 or so metres, which put a lot of retail premises out of effective range.
