Why some retailers and commercial building owners see and feel the need to have windows bars fitted to the shop windows of their buildings is odd.
This happens throughout the Greater Junction Area. It is really unnecessary, as smash and grabs are almost unknown here, even during the period of “The Decline” in economic activity in the year.
And with today’s prosperity in the GJA this activity only harms that area the community, especially the residential sector. It causes passers by to get that chilly fright of a risky area, which we are not.
Isn’t it time we let these shops and building owners know we don’t what these window bars blighting our visual views and the living character of our streetscape.
