For those in the area, Tesko has now closed unfortunately. There was a rumour about it for a while but a couple of weeks ago the owner told me that he could not sustain the new rent of 10k stg a month.



It was never the smartest of places I am sure most would agree, but had plenty of goods at better prices than others. So lets hope someone like Astro take it on and give some competition to Lemar.

Well NN despite the hard times, the Iskele area seems to be booming and building continues. So perhaps the landlord has another wealthier tenant waiting, who knows.

I doubt he will be wearing his red suit in this weather Guin! we will get it filled a couple of days before we come over. next time you are in 1001 see if they have any christmas lights!



Pity about Tesko, someone said that Asba or Stainsbury's were going to take it over!

Thanks Paul, I aim to please!!



hope you have things sorted now and are enjoying Iskele.



We made friends with the new owners of the Kebab shop just up the road from the new Police station, lovely couple. We also visited the tourist info centre in the old chaple in the town centre. Iskele is a lovely place and area. we eat and shop there now as well.



Shhhh.....don't let too many people know about our hidden treasure.

Patrick.

Hello again Paul,



The museum is worth a look for the old paintings and carvings etc. Also it is nice and cool inside!

We were at a local dance festival for Ataturk day, in the amphitheatre in May. The locals were really nice to us and it was an entertaining evening.



Please e-mail me and I will let you know when we are over next and it would be nice to meet up.



Cheers,



P.

There you are parky, its all that cash expats allegedly spend on HP sauce and 'chicken tonight' that attracts such large rent demands I shouldn't wonder.

Major problem in TRNC , commercial rents dissapropriate with potential , seem comparable with UK, but often without realistic business opportunity, landlords just eager to recoup construction costs and except tenants without diligence, thus high failure rate.
