    Online shopping is the cause of the slow strangled death of bricks and mortar retail. No footfall no profit

    The only shops left in Waterford are all the hipster coffee shops. I never would have predicted that Ireland would embrace the whole American coffee culture as much as we have but the evidence is all over the city- queues of people outside multiple coffee shops. Dont see the appeal myself, its just coffee, but there you go.
