Marseille Latest: Docks and Shopping News

Contributor blog post by Aixcentric:

Wandering through Les Docks Village last week, late morning, I was surprised how quiet it was. It’s been open a year now and is an imaginative conversion of a very characterful industrial building.

Built in 1858, as a dockside warehouse, it is 365m long (for the days of the year), has 4 internal courtyards (for the seasons), 52 doorways (for the weeks) and 7 levels (for the days of the week). …Continue reading here for Lynne’s report on this newly restored building that has been converted to a mixed use commercial and residential location. Unfortunately, even with plenty of retail stores and locations for dining Les Docks Village is in need of an ‘enseigne locomotive.’

Aixcentric was set up by Lynne Alderson three years ago as a channel to send out info on events taking place around Aix as well as news, relevant books, the latest films, new shops and of course where to eat locally. Why?

According, to Lynne:

"It came about out of frustration with the lack of communication in the town. Posters would suddenly go up about an event that week. No prewarning. I had difficulty too in finding information from many of the tourist offices. Things are slowly getting better and there is sometimes information in English. Hopefully by keeping an eagle eye on the local press and talking with contacts in town, I can publicize fun things that people would otherwise miss. It's a ragbag of info that I come across on my travels. I've published nearly 600 posts now and have lots of followers so hopefully, it is fulfilling its role of helping people, residents and visitors alike, get the most of their time in Aix."
