And I think I've mentioned the one further down towards the Chinese next door to the former Menphys charity shop, and possibly the one after that, near the post office
    You Sir, are extremely knowledgeable about your local area.

    A real credit to the community

    They're quite discreet, so everybody turns a blind eye. The one over the road from Iceland is on the first floor above several premises, including Engelbert Humperdinck's favourite Chinese restaurant. The other two are at street level but fairly unobtrusive, with boarded shop fronts. Most people are probably so distracted by the cheap bin liners in the window of Wilko's over the road that they don't even notice them

    Our local one is hidden down a very side alley. I have to get very detailed directions to find it....

    Give me ambiguity or give me something else.

    The Thai massage parlour in Neath didn't last 6 months.

    They must have been doing sommat wrong or we're too poor.

    In fact we're so poor that the British Heart Foundation charity shoppe or emporium (4 dvds for 1 at Xmas) has closed down.

    Though it may just be the competition from all the other charity shoppes about the place.

    I initially thought that too and decided, on reflection, it was actually extremely appropriate to a male customer.

    However, in the interests of commerce and especially taking Brexit into account, I decided it may not be in the interest of future business growth.
