a very clever name and a fine image

the structure is very photogenic
Tom Wilson: Yes, the fruit out front makes the pic.
Well seen Tom.
Tom Wilson: It's been there for years - our local greengrocer - I've just got round to taking the pic.
Ha! Very good!
Tom Wilson: Makes a change from something like "Smith and sons, Greengrocers" smile
HA! I like that, Tom.
Tom Wilson: Nice one, eh?

How about, ‘Oranges are not the only fruit’ for a shop name, to steal an book title?
Tom Wilson: Very good smile There's also a book called "The lemon grove" - which is a bit shorter smile

Good one - the hairdressers over here also lean towards pun names for their businesses. This is a good one.
Tom Wilson: I had a picture some time ago of a local hairdresser's shop - The Head Gardener - which I thought was pretty good smile There's one near Manchester airport called, The Hair Port smile
I like shops with catchy names like this, however, as we are both posting shops today I wonder what you will make of mine wink
Tom Wilson: very colourful, Brian!
and chip shops. I hope they prosper
Tom Wilson: Well, Fruit-a-peel has been there for years now and seems to be surviving.

Another book title “Green apples” by Ivan Achinside.
A fun name, Tom. Like how as a green grocery store they've made green the prominent colour as well.
To go along with Chad's, More Than Bananas
