New life arises


A few days ago, we posted a photo of this building which housed an antique shop. It was conducting a sale preliminary to its closing down and shutting its doors. But new life has arisen. It is now known as The Golden Egg and is selling school uniforms.

Je suis bien contente de voir renaître un magasin ! Je le vois comme un signe d'espoir pour nous aussi !

Olivier said...

c'est la reprise, peut être une annonce de la fin de la crise. En France, je sais pas si des magasins d'uniformes d'écoles existent, peut-être pour les écoles privées.
it is resumption, can be an announcement of the end of crisis. In France, I know not so stores of uniforms of schools exist, perhaps for the private schools.

I guess you'll always need school uniforms. I like the painting job being done here!

This could be only good: good luck to the new business, thank you for the happy update.

Marie Reed said...

That was quite a fast turnover! I hope that they are the only school uniform shop in town!

In difficult times, it's good to have a new shop in there. I hope the business goes well.

@ Marie - I'm trying to figure out what they sell...I didn't know our public schools even had uniforms...maybe they'll cater to the Catholic schools...I guess some schools may require certain colored shirts and shorts or something...

I'll have to stop in and see what the heck they're doing...

odd name to sell uniforms...

B Squared said...

Good luck to them. Sounds like a season business at best.

Halcyon said...

Interesting choice for the name. I am guessing this place is owned by someone of Asian heritage.

Lois said...

Glad to see there is new life there! It is so depressing to see shuttered businesses and the building just sitting there unused.

Daryl said...

That is a fast turnaround ...

Becky said...

Why "The Golden Egg," I wonder? Interesting name for a school uniform shop. But I'm glad this building didn't go to waste!

Tricia said...

Good luck goes out to the new owners - Hope they have a fruitful business!

Dear Jacob,

It's so nice to see this picture. Because it symbolises life. A shop closes and a new one starts up.
Interesting name for a shop selling school uniforms. I wonder what it symbolizes?

Thank you again Jacob for all your kind comments on my blog.

Wishing you and Lois Anne a wonderful evening.

Best regards
Asta

When one door closes for one person, it opens another door of opportunity for someone else.

It is so tough to run a small business. People do it so often w/o experience, a business plan, or a clear understanding of the numbers. I hope it is a golden egg and not a goose egg. Also thanks for raising the ethical issue of killing animals for food on my blog. It shows that you are caring folks.

Cool facade - almost reminds me of the Alamo! Is the woman on the left painting a sign on one of the "golden eggs"?

OoPs! I again commented as arts... I keep forgetting to log out and log in! But, as I said "Hope the new business gets lucky in that old place!! :-)"
