Moxons the famous fishmongers of shepherds bush and more recently of clapham, is opening a shop on lordship lane. this is wonderful news, seeing old style shops open up locally is a real treat.

Au contraire Bob. When I look at footage of animals suffering needlessly or burger-munching obese people sweating their way up a flight of stairs I consider vegetarianism to be the easier option by far! Which is why I am surprised that ED doesn't have a veggie restaurant.

mxons is a london based family business which has been in the city for nearly 300 years selling fish, so i would not consider them to be a multinational chain destroying the chracter of ED... and as mentioned earlier, FC sopers of nunhead is an absolutely brilliant example of a good quality local business surviving the onset of multinational faceless stores...

Anyone that thinks that an independent business operating in more than one location is a chain store is a MUPPET! Use your brain and some common sense. We all know what a real chain store is and we all know why so many people in ED don't want them. So drop the comments about a store like Moxon's being a chain store for your own sake!

Now, now ladies, there's no need for handbags at dawn. Perhaps you are eating too much meat and it's making you lethargic and grumpy? Have some falafels or something.

This whole chain store / local business thing makes me laugh.


There used to be loads of butchers and grocers in the area, until the yuppies cheered the new Sainsbury's opening on Dog Kennel Hill, and couldn't wait to get up there in the jeeps.... Sure enough, all the little businesses went closed up shop due to no custom......


Years later, things have changed, and a little family business is suddenly trendy again, and people can't wait to queue outside the organic butchers!


Funny how times change, and attitudes change with them.

Ha Ha - how true.

But I think it's a little unfair to say the butcher is popular just because small family businesses are trendy again. I think it just goes to show what happens in a shop (any shop) if you:

a) sell good quality stuff

b) sell it at a reasonable price

c) sell it with a smile

Certainly beats being sullenly handed water-injected battery-farmed chicken, chopped on a slab caked in congealed blood (there are plenty butchers like that in the UK)
