Some shops start to move into the Corn Exchange

After 2 years and a half of an almost empty building some new shops are starting to move into the Corn Exchange. These shops are "All American Vintage", shoe business "Russo Italia" and Primo's, a 'concept cafe' selling gourmet hot dogs, coffee and ice cream. These are hardly the kind of business that Zurich Assurace were planning to attract when they kicked the independent traders out about 2 years ago. The whole point was to turn the Corn Exchnage into an "international food emporium". No, it seems the strategy has changed and they are advertising the venue as an "independent fashion outlet". BUT THIS IS WHAT IT WAS BEFORE!!! Only that the previous traders were not the kind of "independent" businesses that can afford to pay high rents...
