Can the recommend anywhere as good, for a similar price?

I was meant to get round to trying Headnizm, but then saw they were closing down. shame

Good! Betting shops bring nothing to an area.

Possibly because, like Sogim Pharmacy in same building, it's rent has been increased? This building (99-115 Lordship Lane) was sold a couple of years ago (I think to an investment group) - the advertising blurb ran:

"• Prime investment opportunity located in the gentrified* London suburb of Dulwich.• Multi-let parade to strong coverants for an average unexpired term of 11.4 years.• Re-based rental levels with strong prospects for future rental growth. • Freehold. • Total current income: £199,750 pa.• Offers in excess of: £2,515,000.• Net initial yield: 7.5%."

I think the new owners might be exploring those "strong prospects".

*It's official Lou!

I doubt you'll find any hard border between urban and suburban London. But East Dulwich feels pretty suburban to me, in that it's pretty much entirely residential - with businesses only really servicing the local population. If it's not, then it sure as hell isn't far off.

Peckham, Camberwell, Brixton, Clapham, New Cross, all feel significantly less so.

A friend of mine referred to East Dulwich as the suburbs about 30 years ago. I was very, very upset.

An area can be both a suburb and a district simultaneously. How would you describe suburb? By your definition, there would be no suburbs as they’d all be districts.

A friend of mine referred to Dovedale/therapia/shelbury etc as "Sid James Suburbia" 😅

The pharmacist in Sogim said they plan on moving to a smaller unit over the road.

Indeed -next to the ED LOCAL Newsagents (which also now has a "Retail Unit To Let" sign outside). Might be a lot of new exciting businesses soon... might be.

And also excellent cuts. Many recommendations on here.

Thanks for the recommendations smiling smiley

Unfortunately a bit the wrong end of ED/Peckham for us as we're now Forest Hill/Honor Oak borders. My other half still travelled back to LL for Headnizm though, as the cuts were good and the prices so reasonable. Going to miss Stacey and her team.

A convenience store called Simply Fresh is finally about to open in Dulwich Village.

messageRe: New Shops in Dulwich / Peckham
Posted by goldilocks 07 October, 2019 07:14

About to open might be a bit of a stretch - its advertising for staff but is by no means looking ready to open.

We definitely need more supermarkets in the area.

Still waiting and hoping that we get a Fortnum & Mason type outlet on Lordship Lane. The 2 M&S stores are completely overrun with middle aged, well off ladies literally hellbent on chucking everything with a yellow sticker in their baskets. They clog up the aisles and unnecessarily decimate the stock available to those who come after work to buy dinner for the evening. A more upmarket store would hopefully seperate the wheat from the chaff and those who wish to can shop in more pleasant surroundings.

There goes the area

Before we know it chains like cafe Nero will move in and the lane will be doomed all doomed
