I pass these two businesses on the way to the station. They’re quite a long way from any other shops. A Laundrette and Barber shop. The Laundrette sort of makes sense. There are lots of nearby flats, so I guess there’s a fair bit of business. The barbers are slightly less obv. I can’t help but try to make sense of things, so I guess what was going through the barber’s mind was that people at laundrettes have a bit of time on their hands, so they might pop next door for a trim. I’ll pop in for a haircut tomorrow and ask. I think they’re missing a trick, though. They should break down the boundaries, collaborate and rebrand as ‘Wash and Cut’.
