Not much people at Rua Serpa Pinto in Tomar

One of the problems with Corredoura (Rua Serpa Pinto) right now is that the main historical street in Tomar, is going through bad times. Not just this street of course but also the country, Europe and other parts of the world,  due to the world financial crisis. It’s sad to see that a once thriving commercial street is now marked by shops closing down, which as a result attracts fewer people, as seen in the photos below. However I am an optimist and I believe that this is the perfect opportunity for people with initiative to revitalize Corredoura. Any ideas?
