And this is the point. It's like the traders (surely it's just a loudmouth minority) are willing to shoot themselves in the foot in order to prove themselves 'right'.

Bricks and mortar retail is in decline across the globe and we're at a tipping point at the moment. This is the most likely reason for any drop in footfall. All research shows that this type of implementation increases footfall.

The retailers in Cork with their 1970s retail models are goosed. People being more conscious about what they eat means less fried chicken being bought but of course it's all the Pana ban. Nothing to do with global retail trends.

Just out of curiosity, I have to wonder with such a large crowd on Patrick's Street at that time.
Were any of the moaners shops open?

If the moaners want extra business then they will have to cop themselves on and have their premises open when people need them open not 9 to 5 etc.

I dont often agree with Terry shannon but he said more or less the same thing
he and you are correct, some traders are pissed off with the CBA some see them as a closed shop if you pardon the pun and a glorified social club,

There's no innovation from these traders. Thousands of people in town on a dry Sunday evening and most of, if not all, the traders had their doors firmly shut. Bonkers stuff.

Huge crowd for the Lights On event as usual. I wonder how did they all get there..... oh, it was after 6:30.....
Fact remains at 5 town was empty and the shops were open.

People that doubt and debate Reality kinda miss the experience. 4:35 Today.

It was on at 6.30 and the crowds were there before that.

Stop lying.

I was on Patrick Street at about 5.30 tofay and it was quite busy. It is not surprising that town is quiet during the work day on a Monday in November, so choosing to only look at a photo at 4.35pm is misleading.
