Things Ain't What They Used T' Be

From the Kentish Express recently:

Once again the lumbering behemoth that is Tesco feels the need to expand yet another already huge store. Opinion is as usual divided on this one. I think you guys know what my opinion is. Do we really need more of what Tesco has to offer?

And then there were these three mini-articles.

Two doors down from Anatoli is a shop that has been many things over the years, but has recently reopened as a gentlemen's hairdresser. What is with Tenterden? At last count, we had

  • Mazi Barbers
  • Jaselyn's
  • The Barber Shop
  • ManGo
  • Keith Francis
  • Master Cutters
  • William-Charles
  • Pizzazz
That's eight hair establishments in a town of 9,000. Now we have Dyson Brown. That is nine, and in my opinion, quite enough. Who owns the Dyson Brown building? The same landlord that owns Anatoli, and Shire in the following article.

Economic contraction, then, or greedy landlords? Or a bit of both? Or something else entirely?

Finally, these people are retiring, but yet again, another shop stands empty.
