Time for change at the Corner Shop?

(This post was originally posted by Chewy on the Coronation Street Blog in August 2016, reposted to this blog with permission.)

Dev Alahan has been the Corner Shop boss for a long time now, 17 years in fact, which got me thinking, maybe it's time for a change at the Corner Shop.

I do like Dev as a character, he's strange but likeable.

The Corner Shop however does feel a bit wasted on Dev, most of the scenes we see these days are between Dev, Mary and Erica. It doesn't really feel like a meeting place for characters like it used to, especially now that characters like Molly and Sophie no longer work there.

It would be interesting to see perhaps a new character coming into the street and buying the shop from Dev, who still has Prima Donner to share scenes with other characters.

Perhaps even Freshco could open a mini market there, and bring in a manager.

With Kate Oates first episode airing today, I wonder if we will begin to see some changes on the Street?
