Everything under one roof. Well, nearly everything

5 September 2011

This is the future of the high street, as the credit crunch takes a tighter grip and more retail outlets go out of business – diversification.

Visit this American store and you can get your tan topped up while your having indeterminate viruses sorted out, a website designed for you and your old VHS tapes transferred to DVD.

It’s a surefire hit waiting to happen and once they expand, we reckon they’ll add dog grooming, cupcakes and while-u-wait vasectomies to their list of services. Remember where you saw it first.

    My favourite one is one of them Hairdressers that also have row after row and wigs, African DVD's and internet access with a nice money transfer scheme on one premisses. They also sell Wu Tang Clan, Ecko and Sean John T-Shirts. Tesco must be shitting it.

    There's a place in Perth called "Video Drive-In", which is basically a video (or, now, DVD) rental shop that has stand and tan booths in it. Strange thing about the name of it too is that you can't actually drive in.

    I worked in a post office which offered; ink catridges being filled, graphic design, poster/banner printing, laptop repair and sold loads of toys, cards and stationary. Oh, and the diverse post office range of banking, bill payment, stamps and post. I got sacked after one day.

    When I lived in Melbourne there was a shop in Chapel Street (Windsor end) called Handbags and Hungarian Books. Now that's what I call one-stop shopping.
