Shop for bags at Mucci

Your author visited Mucci Bags, at 134 Charing Cross Road, on Thursday and bought a very nice new bag for a reasonable price. However, in conversation with the owner, he learned that, despite a 30 year history on the site, the shop has lost substantial trade due to the neighbouring Crossrail works.

Being in the middle of a building site isn't particularly good for business, and also reduces passing trade, so the takings at Mucci are suffering. It isn't a particularly attractive premises, but they do stock a good range of bags, including some smashing leather satchels, and given the Crossrail problems, it felt like they were worthy of a mention.

The proprietor was a thoroughly nice chap, and your author is always keen to champion independent traders, so hopefully a few readers will consider popping in. The shop is open seven days a week, and you can find more information here.
