So, add together these two things.
1) We\’ve got a recession and shops are going bust all over the place. There will be, therefore, any number of places that can be taken up on month by month or even week by week rents.
2) We\’ve got the ban on incandescent light bulbs. But this isn\’t a *legal* ban. This is a *voluntary* ban. One that current retailers will of course obey, for they have long term interests. But an upstart working on monthly rents and for the short term wouldn\’t give a shit about such a *voluntary* agreement.
Thus, buy a few containers of incandescents, take up a month by month shop lease and start selling.
I know where to start looking for them wholesale (I am, after all, already in the light bulb industry) and I\’m also pretty sure I can get such a plan into the newspapers.
So, anyone interested in having a go?
