New shop for Jude Court

The owner of a planned new convenience store at Jude Court on Mantle Road has applied for a licence to sell alcohol from the premises. MNM Stores is the applicant.


As the long-delayed development on Mantle Road finally appears to be nearing completion, this is the first concrete sign that the ground floor retail units will be used, with this store joining Bohemia Hair and Clarkey's to bring more life to this side of the station.

any idea who the applicant is? Is it sainsburies?

No, they already ruled the site out as we reported a while back. It's an independent convenience store owner. I have updated the article to acknowledge that.

I heard it's Ann Summers.

Will they be selling good honest organic lubricants?

Can't really blame anyone for wanting to tap into the station footfall (and almost anything is better than empty shops) but I'm not sure we need another convenience store. There are two within two minutes' walk of the back of the station already and several more on the other side. They're not all brilliant, of course - far from it - so perhaps we should welcome the competition.

Be interesting to see who else takes an interest in that stretch.

@ Hugh - I heard the same, but they'll be going for a local branding, Brockley's Cock (apostrophe deployment as yet unknown).

Would it be acceptable if the alcohol was sold in a twee way?

Hugh said...

Will they be selling elderflower wine from the West Sussex Wholesome Lifestyle Collective fragranced with homemade tar and a splash of national curriculum anxiety (Ginny and Samantha leading the complimentary tastings while collecting for the people in Libya)?

I thought the licence application was from NISA. Is that the same as MNM stores?

NISA Today is an organisation of small independent retailers so MNM Stores is likely to be the independent business owner.

Given the recent run of great shop names maybe this one will be called Slim Shady's Wine and Spirits.

Perhaps they'll be regular readers of the Brockley Blog and call it Brockleys Whine (apostrophe tbc).

Or Brocleyites Whine.

Or something more welcoming and inclusive - Brockleys Come?

Oh dear! just when one thought Brockley Center shopping area could not get worse, suddenly another cheap alcool provider comes along. Well at least better than a betting shop or a van rental, or a trush shops.

Does anyone know what is happening at the back of Biagio. A new building has just appeared in the mews. An expansion of the succesfull first and exclusive hotel and restaurant of Brockley Road?

Out of interest, what is a trush shop?

How's that knee by the way?

It is really important for employees working in licensed alcohol premises – bars, alcohol beverage shops, restaurants, supermarkets - to takealcohol training courses. By this training, they will know the different legal responsibilities in selling and supplying of alcohol beverages, and they will know why they need to have a personal license and premise license. This training is also designed to prevent underage alcohol access for minors.
