To settle a family argument,can anyone confirm or deny that at sometime in the past, there was a Waitrose store in Lordship Lane?

No; The Co-Op was The International Stores and Super Drug was Tesco's back in the 1980s.


Hope that settles things.

And there was a David Greig.

There is a page on closed branches on the Waitrose history website and nothing shows for East Dulwich / Lordship Lane there. [waitrosememorystore.org.uk]

So incidentally where was David Greig? I feel sure the sign inside Tart looks very similar to the one that was at Loughborough junction....what hapowbedvto tgat sign that was there as it has gone..

messageRe: Family argument.
Posted by nxjen 17 December, 2019 16:55

Yes, thatís where it was. There used to be, or perhaps itís still there, a thistle insignia which was David Greigís logo. Tartís predecessor was a restaurant called Le Chardon, French for thistle.

The first supermarket on the now co op site opened in the 1960s - cannot remember whether it was Somerfields but have an idea it was a really naff name.
