Chaos, queues and a cold pie

When I began by studies in Grahamstown there was a sort of Mall like structure, with some parking and a few shops. The parking space has since tripled in size, a national fast food outlet, also known as Wimpy, has emerged, catering for Saturday hangovers and ridiculous queues decorate the interior of the supermarket, called Pick 'n Pay over lunch time.

So, a quick lunch, meaning walking to the shops, getting a pie and a coke took me 29 minutes, and I live an estimate of 60 seconds away from the shop.

This all happened over a time span of three years, and I think that residents should start questioning where this influx of people and the static business development stand in relation to one and other.
