In the JC Colin George, manager of clothes shop The Loft, two shops away from Ahava, was quoted as follows: "I'm pleased Ahava is leaving. It's brought the street down. I've complained to the landlords, as has everyone here. Everyone would like them to leave. I wish they had left two years ago. Protesters are just going to follow them around, wherever they go. Maybe they should be an online business instead."
During today's successful counter-demo I went to see him to discuss what seemed to be a pretty outrageous stance. He insisted he was misquoted and that his words were twisted. "I want Ahava to stay" he said. "I buy their products and the staff could not be nicer. I have never had a problem with Ahava."
Go figure ...
