Lewes does NOT need more antique of coffee shops - this is a sad indication of the decay of our town.

The shop is actually a current successful trader within the town, simply wanting to move to a more prominent position. What is SAD is the fact that certain people cannot see the positives, in that this is not going to be an empty unit- but occupied with an independent trader. Now before jumping towards the glass half empty, please just think Swiss Franc about the possible benefits.

Swiss Franc - In the 30 years that I've known Lewes, there's always been a lot of antique shops. I can't see the town decaying, I'm sure they must bring a lot of trade to the town.

Living as we do in a post-internet shopping world, the businesses which survive on the high street are likely to be the ones which can't be undercut by Amazon. Consequently we have lots of antique shops, coffee shops and hairdressers and fewer and fewer electrical/electronics and bookshops. It doesn't help when landlords demand eye-watering rents... The antique shops are a big draw for visitors so I wouldn't knock them.

Yup, it's going to be yet another antiques shop. Like Lewes needs another one.
