The Irish High Street - alive and well...?

I have been on the road a lot over the past few weeks and aside from getting ever more concerned about my rapid consumption of diesel, I have been poking around the various towns I trundle through. True, the independent wine shops face determined competition from the multiples, but independence is also a great asset - encouraging flexibility, imagination and increasingly important - ingenuity!

There are a host of other categories of independent retailers that are subject to the same pressures - but I spotted one the other day that I don't think will suffer much competition from the likes of Tesco or Aldi.....

Guns and Music - now that's a novel combination!
