Friday Fotos: De Ja Vu.....Umbrella Update

By

Remember my post two weeks ago featuring the defunct discount broker Foxton's umbrella on a my local neighborhood fruit cart?

 

Fruit Cart Upper West Side

It turns out the Foxton's umbrellas are about as effective as Foxton's agents. LOL

Hi Roger and Connie, I though it was funny but there is more to the story. Who knew fruit carts are very competitive!

When I orginally posted on 7/16, the fruit stand was in front of my building at West 87th & Broadway. I never noticed him before since the fruit cart was always on 88th and Broadway a block away.

It turns out they are two competing fruit carts. Different vendors. The fruit cart vendor on 88th Street called the cops on the guy at 87th Street this morning. He has a vendor license so there was nothing the cops could do. He can sell fruit at any corner he likes.

Oh, the things people do to make a living. Sometimes that rat race has too many rats.

Michell - Yes, I remember the original blog post about the umbrellas.  All too funny!  However, I wouldn't fault Foxton's agents, as much as their business plan.

 Rich, LOL, It aint easy!


Myrl, Good point, they probably could have succeeded if their business model allowed them to cooperate with the brokerage community.

Mitchell,

That is funny - unless you just happened to wait until no one was there (kidding). :)
