String Bean Alley – Get Rid Of Adjoining Stalls

Did anybody else notice that String Bean Alley seemed to benefit from greater exposure last Sunday?
On a warm Sunday in February there were more traders absent in the general market than normal. There were large gaps in L shed with up to 4 adjoining stalls empty and the result was much greater exposure for the new String Bean Alley traders. One trader told us it was his best trading day since opening. On an otherwise quiet Sunday that was significant.

Our heading is deliberately provocative. We are not proposing getting rid of anybody but Sunday’s accidental exposure may give management another lead. The traditional customer flow up the top sheds (the S flow) has obviously not embraced String Bean Alley up until now. More radical exposure may be the answer.
