One of these being built between the Co op and Chener books.

Also it appears Sema Thai is being converted into a dessert and juice bar place.

Sorry i know there is a thread about new businesses but i can't find it.

Where is Sema Thai?

A news report today suggested at 10% of High Street locations were currently empty/ closed. At the moment LL seems (generally) to be bucking this trend; it will be interesting to see if this continues past the CPZ implementation.

Really though? From the top of the street the following properties are empty (pre CPZ)

The building previously part of the Maudsley trust (double fronted building onto Lship lane)
The old French café
The old Threshers
The building next to SMBS is a constant pop up at the moment but has been closed on and off for years
Dulwich Tandoori
Lush Designs


Might have missed some but off the top of my head those stand out.

The old French House is now Sylvesters.
Threshers finally looks like it's being renovated after years of being empty (following a cannabis farm getting busted in the flat above it)
The Building next to SMBS has a deliberate business model / offer as a space for rotating places I think.
Lush Designs is indeed empty at present
The Maudsley site isn't a retail unit.

In addition there have been a flurry of new openings.

Personally, I think LL is doing pretty well. Will be interesting to see what happen post brexit though.

Another empty shop/new business is about to be added to the list when Sogim Pharmacy closes. There is already a 'New Lease Available' sign nailed to the outside. Pharmacist says increased rent is why she is leaving.

quite a few new openings, imho they should all be celebrated, much better than empty units.

Dulwich Tandoori isn't empty? Had a meal there last week.

What is Sylvesters?

messageRe: New businesses on the lane
Posted by goldilocks August 13, 09:22AM

Also just heard that Aneto is closing (by Goose Green) - my point on this is not that the 'Lane is in decline' - but more to flag that the increasing rates is generally pushing some businesses out and there is continual turnover.

Sylvesters appears to be some kind of bar / pizza place. No one seems to know what the old Threshers will be.

Street, dominated by independent retail, with small retail spaces in affluent area with relatively low footfall characterised by many comings and goings of shops/restaurants shocker. Been this way for ages.

Think this may be more to do with poor management since they expanded into the bigger premises. Used to love going in there as it's on the doorstep but on recent visits experienced loud music which they refused to change or turn down, slow service etc and not replying to customers online so a large part of this is down to customers voting with their feet round here as there is so much choice rather than a general decline.

bumr about Aneto, the kids love that place. I agree though it hasn't transitioned very well into that larger space.

What about Dulwich Tandoori ??

Hardly a New Business.

I think that's my fault as suggested it was closing up thread - I got confused, think its actually Surma which has closed isn't it?

goldilocks posted that Dulwich Tandoori was 'empty'. It's not. It's full most nights smiling smiley

The former home for Plough DIY is to be a maths tuition centre, according to a poster in its window.

Sign in the window of Headinizm saying they are closing end of September. Shame, as i was going to try it with a view to it being my regular, as the prices seem quite reasonable.

As far as I know this lovely lady will be relocating to another premises in Lordship Lane which is to be confirmed. If we don't support our independents then big companies will take over. I love Sogem's, always friendly and willing to help and advise at the drop of a hat. Please support local business!

Very upset Headinizm is closing !! Been going there for the last few years. Great cut and service and SO much cheaper than anywhere else in the area.

Aneto's still saying 'under offer' on rightmove

But whilst searching I noted G (Peckham Rye) is up for sale too.

That’s good news if it happens. The space was a little large for what’s needed, so hope this right sizing better aligns on affordability and business success

What an awful replacement. A fancy, expensive, health food shop is no replacement for a decent curry house. there is one of these in Balham i seem to recall and the prices are extortionate.
