Beginning at home.

A thought for the day. Charity shops are admirable enterprises, until they become the enemy.

North Berwick is one of many towns that used to have a bookshop but doesn’t any more; instead it has more charity shops than I can list here. When they become so prevalent that they have a negative effect on commercial retailers, there is legitimate cause for concern.

I’d like to see their operation licensed, with local councils given the responsibility of deciding when enough is enough.

    Only have to look at Comely Bank, I was amazed the last time I was there and that’s years ago now. I went to school nearby way back when and it had all the shops you needed. Not now it seems.
