Old-fashion Huxters look is no more

By Staff | Dec 9, 2015

To the editor,

Not sure if you can use this in you letters section but I know that I am not alone in this view!

“Huxters – where are you?

The old-fashioned quirky top-hatted Huxter sign which in itself attracted customers is no more – what a shame!

Instead, following the recent refurbishment, it has been replaced by a newfangled grotesque “jolly” green gherkin, and thus joins the ranks of any other modern, ordinary looking convenience store.

Huxters old iconic sign heralded something different, reminiscent of a by-gone age, and located as it was on Periwinkle Way close to the Causeway invited investigation and set the tone for a stay on Sanibel.

Although now still very much the same store inside it has lost some of its appeal, why change this delightful image?

Yours sincerely
