Nothing new

photoThe Oracle again and another new shop offering little or nothing that’s actually new.

Holland & Barrett’s potions and tablets and alleged health food have little scientific backing yet this is yet another shop attracted to The Oracle offering little that anyone actually needs.

Plenty of people were in their on Saturday though few were interested in the pick and mix of dried fruit that took pride of place.

If you walked through any town and named the shops that offered little of any true value or use, you’d find they were the majority.

Will any shop ever open that offers anything genuinely new and useful? Sad as it seems, with shoppers happy to buy whatever is served up to them, they don’t really need to.
