The small Coop supermarket in my street has been bought by one of the largest supermarket chains. These coops are the last resort for people like me, who are forced to live in precarity. I suspect the Coop couldn't pay the rent anymore, just like the bicycle repair shop next to it, which disappeared two years ago. It seems evident that the gentrification of the secondary cities is in progress, wiping out the infrastructures that the poorest people depend on.
