Sam Pangiarella owns Warrens Menswear on Market Street, Fremantle.
The recent street arts festival was particularly extended to include Market Street. The road was cut off from traffic and there was a stage at one end. With the Newport Hotel at the other end and no cars accessing his street Sam was in the middle of a very busy footfall paradigm which saw him with a big smile at the close of proceedings.
Sam argues that he needn't profit, particularly - himself, on festival days but if others around him do, that gives him a great deal of satisfaction.
It's thais type of retailer we need in our mainstreets: stable and altruistic.
Here he is pictured in a second store he has just opened: a pop-up shop in Fremantle's High Street Mall.
