Sun Street seems to be a place where different shops come and go. There are some exceptions. Kennedy's shoe shop has been here as long as I can remember. We mourn the loss of Meer's, that was the last hardware shop inside the city walls. Deakins on the corner at the end has a sign saying that they have been open for more than 140 years. They change the sign annually, and the 'Tour' fails to keep up with it.
