They come and they go….

You can see the effects of the economic crisis wherever you go these days. Walking down avenida Castilla Perez, just from the junction with calle El Barrio down to Plaza Fabrica de los Cangrejos, only a few hundred metres, we have lost one bar, one beauty salon, two shoe shops and a sort of Chinese bazaar shop. Another Chinese shop, selling bags and the like, opposite El Bosque, is also now up for rent, so they’re on their way as well.

There have been, or are about to be, the odd new businesses opening up, so it’s not totally doom and gloom, just a bit like musical chairs. Recent newcomers are a Russian Mini-Market, Mary’s shoe shop and Wines and Delights, and Friday will see the opening of the Life Adventure office in calle El Barrio, so pop along and have a look…maybe even a drink!
