The enbloc sales affected six coffee shops and cafes, with more than 20 stalls. These stalls have to relocate to other places and rebuild their business. This will not be easy.
When the site is redeveloped in the future, the rental is expected to double. This will increase the price of food served in the new outlets. Many of the customers are workers in nearby factories, who will not be able to afford the higher prices. This is the sad part of re-development and is a cause of the rising cost of living.
