Is there too many shops of one type on our streets?

Having studied the streets in my social sciences module. I’ve become a little more interested in streets. One I am interested in is Enfield Highway (Hertford Road) and how it’s changed over time. I randomly stumbled on a video of a local cafe owner talking about how the street has changed.

One thing he mentions is how many supermarkets are now on the road. Compared to the past. The problem is supermarket domination of a different kind! It’s not large supermarkets such as Tesco, Sainsburys, or Asda with their locals and express stores. It’s the large amount tailoured to one community. There are is a large amount of Turkish supermarkets (and restaurants) and not much else really 🙁

Nothing really caters towards anyone else. That’s possibly how people may feel.

I have a lot more to say on this but I have lots of studying to do. Being behind again 🙁
Love all my loyal readers I will try and update this soon!
