The coffee shop is a great New York institution, but it has terrible coffee. And the more traditional coffee shops are trying to catch up with more sophisticated coffee drinkers.
When you place art in the shops, it’s a way to make it more accessible.
What’s crucial in a High Street store is a compelling reason for people to shop there. Shops must offer excellent customer service – and ‘theatre‘ is a must.

During my pre-college years, I went on many trips with my father into the oil fields to visit their operations. On Saturday mornings, I often went with him to visit the company shop. I puttered around the machine, electronics, and automobile shops while he carried on his business.
Some makeup companies have really good recycling policies, and it’s worth finding out whether your favourites are among them. With MAC, for instance, you can take any of your old makeup containers into its shops, and the sweetest deal is that, once you’ve racked up six containers, you get a free lipstick or lip gloss.
There is no point mucking around and saying we are just going to have one or two shops and that’s it… we are going to reach, you know, 40 shops around the world. I want 150 shops in China.

Quality of life is not only about what you find in the shops; it’s about the landscape.
I was born in Mumbai. We stayed in a joint family. But in 1994, my father had to shift to Pune for business. I started working at a very early stage. Immediately after my SSC board examination, I took up odd jobs in shops, as I wanted to contribute to my family.
We’re very lucky that we have such on-trend high street shops in the U.K. as sometimes higher end designers aren’t very practical for day-to-day wear.

In the 1920s and 30s, when Radio Shack was young, a much earlier generation of nerds swarmed into these tiny shops to talk excitedly about building radios and other transmission devices. You might say that Radio Shack helped define gadget culture for four generations, from radio whizzes up to smartphone dorks.
I usually do my writing in a very nice room, my studio, which is in the attic of our house in Wisconsin. But the nice thing about writing is that I can do it in many places. So sometimes I’ll write in coffee shops.

You need to be ahead of the game just enough so that you can have what people want in the shops when they want it.

For me, university was just awful because it was closing one door after the other of all these candy shops of professional possibilities.
If you go to most pawn shops in Las Vegas, they will tell you exactly what they will pay for, say, an iPod. But if you show up with an 1833 ormolu clock, it won‘t pop up in their computer. They are going to tell you to go to Gold & Silver Pawn, because we buy weird things.
I’m such an antsy type of person. I can’t write in a room without other people around. I write in coffee shops.
My kids love Ibiza and we feel committed to it because we keep coming back to the same area. People recognise us in shops now and we have a social life here. We cook at home and have friends around.
Put me in a vintage shop, and I am like a child with sweeties. I find it a million times easier to find a vintage dress than trawl the shops for a pair of jeans, so I am either dressed in really nice vintage, or I am in a pair of tracksuit bottoms looking like a scruffbag.
It’s a story of little girls who are pressed into working in sweat shops in games, who spend all day doing repetitive grinding tasks like making shirts, which are then converted into gold and sold on eBay.

I think our slow, humble beginnings in surf shops, ski shops, bike shops, and motorcycle shops have been extremely important for our success. GoPro is all about celebrating an active lifestyle and sharing that with other people. It’s authentic. It’s not a brand that we went out and bought a bunch of ads for to create.
You can find, occasionally, some absolutely fantastic things in hunting shops. I’ve got one jacket that I just happened across which is a kind of unwashed leather – completely anonymous but absolutely special.
Not exclusively, but the bulk of our local economy should be covered by local currencies, which is more efficient than having global currencies which lose connection with reality in the markets, shops and communities of the people.
Fancy expensive designer shops are out for me as I’m a size 18, sometimes 20, and I therefore do not count as a woman to them.
London is a very big city, Manchester is calmer. I live near the training ground, so I do things around there in the countryside, but I really like Manchester’s Northern Quarter, where they have nice coffee shops and live music places.
I’m not a regionalist. Both places have their pros and cons. And the cultural differences are slighter than they are made out to be. L.A. riots, N.Y. shops. Both are good for stress relief.
The last thing I want to do, even in the off-season, is traipse around shops looking for clothes: it’s not my thing.

A lot of people in barber shops all over Brooklyn talk about Paulie Malignaggi v. Zab Judah.

I love charity shops.
I was born too late to have any temptation with communism, or at least Soviet-type communism. Travelling in Eastern Europe and the ex-Soviet Union, you clearly don’t want to defend a system that would have empty shops and a totalitarian regime and internal passports.
In the past, I played in bands, worked at coffee shops, babysat, and worked as a production assistant.
Shops are not a growing business, so it’s a scary place to be.

They can’t take your house and give it to the mayor‘s mistress, even if they pay you for it. But they can, apparently, take your house and tear it down to make room for a development of trendy shops and restaurants, a hotel and so on.
After graduating college in 2010, I got to work – writing and co-writing all the time, playing and touring in bands, playing for other people’s bands, working in coffee shops all over town.
Everything I do is unfabulous. I’m the most normal person. I love walking everywhere and going to hole-in-the-wall places, like nail shops, because they do the best job. And I go to vintage stores rather than high-end boutiques, because I like to dress different from other people.
So I’m a young boy in the 1940s growing up, seeing Ralph Bunche on a regular basis, seeing Duke Ellington on a regular basis. We know that these people are famous. They’re living in the same community as we live in. They go to the same stores and shops.
In the past, we had several dog butcher shops in Cheongnyangni, but I closed almost all of them down through various measures.
I shop at thrift shops probably five times a week.
I miss being able to have a drink in my local pub, which I can’t do anymore, or being able to go to the shops without every second person staring at me and looking at my basket to see what I’m buying.
