Violent Panda - so you have skipped my response where I acknowledged I was wrong in my initial point, but well done reemphasising the points made by previous posters. Epic Win. Let me address a couple of your points however, as I fear you are equally ill informed: Bag of arse. The markets have never been "historically quiet", unless the local working class don't count as customers - Granville Arcade was very quiet, it wasnt regenerated because it was a thriving market... What's your point? It's footfall in the store that counts, not footfall for Granville Arcade per se. Neither Nour's custom or turnover has increased commensurate with this gentrification and increased potential you're drivelling about. If this is true, and I suspect neither of us know, then that is because Nour has failed to respond to the passing trade - poor retailing. You're not, and have never been, in retail, I take it? Cash and carry operations operate on fairly slim margins compared to retail-only operations. I am a retail consultant and have worked with the Boards of most mayor Cash & Carry and Convenience operators in the UK. If they are acting as a wholesaler, they will buy cheaper. They are not bound to offer all their products with a C&C price, so if they wanted to sell bottles of world beers out of the front of their stores, they are probably best positioned of all the retailers in the area to make the highest mark up whilst delivering against the unfulfilled needs of the passing hipsters.
