I would like to know the difference between "up the street" and "down the street". and in order to make my point clear, I'll quote a paragraph from a book.
Some guy who works up the street comes in and wants to know if we need to buy any petrified wood or geos for a discount. He works at the bizarre store down the street that sells fossils and stuff.
I think these "up" and "down" can be replaced with along. Am I correct? I'm asking you this because if I'm correct, I feel like the author is just repeating his sentence.

mitsuwao23I think these "up" and "down" can be replaced with along.More or less. In this case "up the street" = "down the street" = "at some distance away from here (but not too far) along the same street"
thank you in advance !
