Has Wall Street hit Kloof Street?
The Abraham (that ersatz economic gift to mankind/lover of mine) says that this has always been a tough street for businesses, and especially restaurants.
The most noticeable changes are the closures of street cafés Naked (for some months now), Seattle Coffee and Limnos. Caramellos has also scaled down on their floor space.
Exciting news, however, is that Exclusive Books are opening a childrens book store next door to their exisiting shop in the Lifestyles Centre on Kloof Street. Which makes sense, given that a primary school is right next door...
As mentioned earlier, the recycling facilities have relocated to Jan van Riebeeck Primêre Skool and are not open on Sundays, which is a nuisance (but it did result in me winning a HUGE argument with The Abraham).
