Lordship lane shop gossip (lounged)


Mark

Recommended Posts

83 Lordship lane:


The proposed operation will predominantly trade ?take-away? in addition to offering a small restaurant seating approximately 6-9 covers. The applicant is the ?Bombay Bicycle Club? chain which offer Indian cuisine.

The proposed use opening hours are 5pm to 11pm, 7 days a week.

Home delivery is proposed, with 3 mopeds serving this unit.


It's got permission to have 3 delivery scooters, hurrah! I was just thinking it's about time another food place opened up round here;)

A while ago M&S took over about 20 branches of Iceland across the country. I think certain people read about this and assumed the East Dulwich branch was included, given ED's rapid gentrification over the past few years. As far as I know there is nothing to suggest either that Iceland is going or M&S is coming to East Dulwich at all apart from unsubstantiated rumours. But I would love to know if anyone know more than I do!

Thought I'd might as well ask the horse...

Hi


Please could you tell me if M&S are going to be opening a branch in London's East Dulwich, SE22? I live there and rumours are floating around that you are to open a store, so I though I would ask you directly...


many thanks


Mark



Dear Mark,


Thank you for your email. We are unable to confirm details of a new store in this location. Until a store has been signed off by our development team we cannot provide further details.

I'm seriously thinking about opening a Majorcan 'tapas style' bar/cafe/deli on, or off, Lordship Lane. What does anyone think about this? I can see there's still a big market for this kind of place at the evenings and weekends but am wondering what the lunchtime trade is like. If anyone has any suggestions or help to offer I'd be very grateful. Thanks. Polly

Polly,


I think this would go down very well around LL. Whenever I have been around in the daytime, it has always been busy on the main strip, but venture too far off, and it may be quiet. Have you considered North Cross Road? This is becoming the best place for independent shops/cafes/bar in E.D. (IMHO)

There used to be a tapas bar/restaurant where the Coriander Indian restaurant is now. It shut down about four years ago because it alsways empty. But I never went in there, it looked unwelcoming, cheap and nasty. Lordship Lane is also a different place now, you might have more success.

Have a look at Iceland's website under Media Centre, latest press releases. The 28 stores acquired by M&S are:


2. The 28 stores sold to Marks & Spencer are in Durham Arnison Centre, Ballyhackamore, Bicester, Biggin Hill, Braintree, Caversham, Christchurch, Cirencester, Cleveleys, Coleraine, Devizes, Hazel Grove, Hertford, Honiton, Market Harborough, Morpeth, Morningside Edinburgh, Newtonards, Northallerton, Oadby, Ormskirk, Palmers Green, St Neots, South Woodford, Sudbury, Tewkesbury, Torquay and Trowbridge.


Hope this'll put an end to the rumour....

Hi Mark,


2 of the shops (not the corner shop) of the former Walsh Glazing is going to be 'White Stuff'. For those of you who don't shop in Clapham, Battersea, Wimbledon, etc, it is a trendy 'urban' clothing company.


This is a fact as they have now exchanged on the lease.


Hope this answers your query.


James S.(HHP)


P.S. Please can you include us on your home page local directory, as residntial and commercial agents?

Thanks for the update James, please keep us posted on any other developments.


By all means if you get someone independent to recommend you I can certainly put you on the Business Page. Please get them to email us at the forum directly (click the link at the bottom of this page) or post it in this http://www.eastdulwichforum.co.uk/forum/list.php?9 section of the site.


Thanks again,


Mark

I heard M and S are going into the police station - apparently came from a police man, can't see it happening but thought I should share it anyway!

If the M&S at the police station is true then (leaving aside the implications of losing a local police station) I would say that for once, having a chain open would be a good thing - it will open up the whole ground floor of that SHOCKINGLY ugly building


Also It will encourage more driftage up that end of the Lane which at the moment has many a would-be visitor looking a bit lost and scared ("is that everything? yup")

    • Hi Sue, Thanks for following this up. I was drawn to the bird because it was all white (as far as I could see) with beautiful blue tailfeathers. It looked domestic rather than wild. I am hoping it might be attracted to the bird feeders again. Next time I'll try to get a photo - too surprised and too quickly gone last time! Best wishes, Ilona
    • 'Today at 6pm we are coming together to link hands all the way around Parliament. Now more than ever, we need to send a powerful message to this new Labour government: to stop arming Israel and to push for an immediate ceasefire. Will you join us? ... Keir Starmer can take active steps to change this today. Instead, his government remains disgracefully silent. Join us at 6pm today to demand that the government stops aiding and abetting Israel’s genocide, and to stand in solidarity with the Palestinian people. Today is only the start. We need to keep ramping up the pressure on our political leaders to ensure they know our mass movement for justice for the Palestinian people is not going away. Next Wednesday 24 July, we will be back in Parliament to hold our first lobby of new and returning MPs. Will you join us to take the demands of our movement directly to your MP? [direct link: https://palestinecampaign.eaction.online/julylobby] ... this evening we need a huge turnout to link hands stretching all the way around Parliament. Please join us at 6pm by Parliament Square to make this a powerful and symbolic action that Keir Starmer cannot ignore. I hope to see you there!   In solidarity,   Celie Campaigns Officer  Palestinian Solidarity Campaign'
