Another sad sight and evidence of the recession here, the lighting showroom and wholesaler Jennifer David has closed its doors for the last time. A long time feature of the Uxbridge Road, just up from Bush Hall, the shop closed in the last few days. Outside, almost as a last act of defiance there is still a light hanging over the door - ornate of course - which still turns on and off according to how dark it is.
We've seen some light at the end of the tunnel on the Askew Road recently so lets hope for more of the same here too. And I'm sure we all hope for the best for those people who lost their livelihoods when this specialist retailer, always at risk from downturns, eventually went down.
