    Would you be prepared to run a business where you are liable to make a loss due to the daily upset of traffic.
    Running a business is difficult at the best of times but if you have an on going issue with traffic management and parking issues and struggling to make a profit and staff employed would you think it worth while to face the hassle and problems every day, knowing your stress levels are going to rise or will you call it a day and try to find alternative premises where no extra outside pressures exist.
    I would certainly be looking at alternative premises - not worth the hassle and pressure, doubt of income, staff - loss of interest if they know they are not in a fairly secure job due to loss of trade, the list goes on and on.
    Loss of income means loss of products, loss of customers, loss of staff, loss of business and liveliehood
    Relocation is the only option if trade has been monitored - as it has been.

    Good luck to Birons in finding new premises

    Of course aqua has noticed how successful all the other small 'niche' shops have been along Bridge Street and High Street; all notable for their longevity. All the empty shops must just be a temporary aberration!
