Unfortunately “The Sanctuary” coffee spot only lasted six months or so - after a long and expensive fit-out. This is the old “Coast and Country” and Best of British shop.
OWL lasted longer, but homeware stores just don’t seem to be able to stick it out in the Bay - this is the third one to go under recently. Old-timer Candeliere also went this year after many years in Bute Road.
At the Anzac Road end of Clyde Road things are really looking grim - the bag shop closed last month, and very soon both the shoe shop and the Mega shop are going.
