Where chainstores failed to get a foothold - or considered it not really worthwhile, proper little family owned small traders have remained in business, for decades. Thankfully, Shrewsbury seemed to get the balance about right.

Sure we had a Virgin Records, an HMV, Starbucks and all that. Waterstones did their usual 'cuckoo-in-the-nest' thing to several independent bookshops nearby, too. But generally, they've not allowed Tesco and their like into town, thereby preserving some of the town's character. And for that the town planners can be applauded.

They're only small and still quite new, but we do have a vinyl only indie record shop, now.
