Looking for profit’

Joan Moore, Fish Hoek

It was with the deepest disappointment that the people of Fish Hoek learnt of the judgement which would allow a bottle store to be opened in Fish Hoek against their wishes.

It is hard to understand the judgment and sad to see a 200-year old tradition overturned in this centenary year by a greedy shop owner looking for profit.

Personally, I shall not be shopping at the Pick * Pay in The Arcade again. This will not break the bank for them, but although I was very pleased when they opened in the village a few years ago, I shall not continue to support them. In fact, I have found Shoprite, Spar and Checkers give a better deal than Pick * Pay.
