How quickly and decisively this long standing independent vanished from town. Others have vanished in no time but this shop, a stalwart of Reading, is more of a loss because of all the decades it spent trading successfully.
So what next for this prime location?
Sadly it must be a toss up between coffee shop, hairdresser and mobile phone dealer.
A second reason to mourn its loss.
