Shops Empty and Full

Empty shops throughout most of the country are blighting the look of our streets, not to speak of the consequences for businesses. In Ipswich the situation is not as bad as in many other towns and cities, but the locations of some vacant premises are particularly sad aesthetically - for example in The Walk and Thoroughfare, that unique and quite intimate precinct, and in Butter Market where Clarks and the Early Learning Centre occupied an attractive building. Yet next door the newly opened Patisserie Valerie has enjoyed great success and almost always there are people ogling the cakes in the window as well as eating inside.
