Oh, that is sad to see... A lot of the same happening here in Horten too--many places closing after years of business. Some new places have opened, but more are closing compared to opening. Such are the times... Happy weekend, Britt-Arnhild! :o)

I think it's human nature to want things to stay the same - at least when they're going along well. I had hoped Tante Isabel would be there when I come (in the distant future), but by then maybe you will have found another lovely place to "window shop".

This is very sad, we have lots and lots of shops in the uk that have closed or are closing. Either people haven't got the money to spend anymore, or rates go up etc, it is not a good sign, but at least you do have your memories..!

I understand how you feel, the same thing is going on in my city as well. The leasing costs are very high, and usually hits independent merchants. Many of my favourite shops closed not because of lack of business but landlords demanding unreasonable rents. Then come in the chain stores and the shops become boring.

This breaks my heart! I love the small, individual shops where owners have worked so hard to present us with different things. Sometimes it's hard to know what town one is in because all the chain shops are the same!

Agree that it's usually the fault of the greedy property owners - they raise the rents huge by amounts and the small businesses cannot pay, so sad.

Trondheim Through al Seasons

  • I love to travel, and often you find me somewhere around the world, taking photos, writing, exploring. Through a this I aways have Trondheim on my mind. The city where I live and work, and after being a blogger, bogging daily in The House in the Woods, for almost 5 years, it was high time to start a Trondheom blog. Several people have been and are my inspiration. I want to mention especialy Merisis in the Merisi - Vienna for Begiiners blog and also Ivar Mølksnes and his "Byglimt" in the main paper in Trondheim and Midt Norge.
