Update 13 July 2008: The Fitzroy newsagency / Goodfellows continues to evolve. They now have a new counter, clean new flooring, and shelves that look full of stock rather than half empty. It’s a far more attractive space that makes you feel more comfortable entering.
Original post: The Fitzroy newsagent on Brunswick St has closed its original premises and moved in with Goodfellows. This may be the first obvious sign that the new IGA mini-supermarket has interrupted the business status quo in the area. As I wrote earlier this year, Goodfellows will have to change and improve if it is to survive, and it seems the changes are beginning.
