In Launceston TAS on “General Retail and Hire -...” at 80A-88 Charles Street Launceston TAS 7250:

Anne Clifton commented

The unique charm of Launceston is that it missed out on mass modernisation over the ages. This lovely building is special because of its corner position, curved glass frontage and leadlights typical of an era.

It would be a shame to allow a ubiquitous 'outlet' frontage to replace/remove these features. I understand this business has a brand to convey. It seems as though its 300 other locations can adapt to its surrounds - why can't the architects make its 'Launnie' features part of their branding?

Launceston is not like other towns. Nor do we need to be. We have character. Let us keep it, let us enhance it - not white it out with a corporate/bank like blank.
