There is no Electrical Shop, Phone Shop, Furniture shop.

Clothing shops are expensive and do not carry a wide range of sizes. Try buying a pair of Jeans.
There is no longer a Tailors.

Apart from Sainburys where can you buy cookware.

Where can you buy a clock , a watch, towels, a bedside lamp ,curtains, bedding , Sheets.

Shall I go on ?

You can buy cookware at Farmers and a lamp at Mrs Robinson and other shops, Sainsburys sell bedding, sheets and lamps. I suspect you could buy most of the items listed by Dulwich Fox in charity shops and in other places in the area.

In all seriousness, with the rise of Westfield et al most local High Streets would struggle to provide such services. Im not sure ED is unique in that respect.

To the best of my knowledge, Sainsbury's in DKH sell towels, bedding etc. At least they used to.

Where in Forest Hill can you get these things you mention? Or Peckham? OK there are phone shops in Peckham. My daughter bought a new battery in one. It lasted about a fortnight.

Where are the furniture shops in Peckham, Brixton and Forest Hill? Where are the electrical shops? Where are the cookware shops?

For most places in London, you have to go up to town or to a big shopping centre to buy things like jeans, or to get a decent choice of cookware etc. That has been the case for over fifty years.

East Dulwich did until recently have a cookware shop. It closed down.

Many if not most people these days buy things you mention like electrical goods, clocks (if anybody still uses clocks), bedside lamps online.

I agree foxy. But then again, in a age of internet shopping, I suppose most departmental stores are heading down the pan. Locally, I would say we have a relatively decent variety of shops, however the prices may not reflect what sort of bargains you may be able to source elsewhere. I suppose thats reflective of this sort of London neighbourhood these days.

Maybe some people choose to ignore those economic aspects when it comes to living in the real world 😊

The question was about Boots and I pointed out there were Boots stores in Forest Hill, Brixton and Peckam.

You said no one is going to those places just to go to Boots

I said They may go to Boots if they are in those places for other shopping
I said East Dulwich does not have real shopping facilities.

I did not suggest that all of the items not available in E.D. could be found in the other places.
Most if not all can be found in Brixton. Morleys sells furniture, bedding, curtains, and many of the items
I mentioned. There are Many Clothes shops, Phone shops.
