It was the small family-owned businesses and cafés that bore the brunt of the violence.
But the girl who runs the baby clothes shop was painting a big red Thank You to everybody who helped on her boarded-up windows.
There's pink balloons on a boarded-up children's charity shop and a sign offering face-painting sessions inside.
The streets have been swept and there's tables outside coffee shops and restaurants.
And it's business as usual for almost everybody, except the corner shop supermarket which was completely gutted.
I felt so sorry for the lovely Italian boys who run the little café where they're so friendly to children. And for everybody on a parade of high street shops where businesses were already struggling.
