Now you see it ...
Just an ordinary suburban auto repairer and auto electrician. They've been there for years, just across from the service station (to the left of this photo), and always seem busy. But they're on the way out. 7-eleven has bought the property, and apparently it's being turned into a big convenience store, and there'll be no room for these guys. Bit sad to see these smaller operators pushed out by big corporations. There will probably be a significant impact on the small supermarket in the shops next door, and perhaps also the bakery as well.
Yes, many of these small local shops need a facelift, but a big shiny convenience store? No thanks.
