Sids Social


Sids, the Brockley Road bathroom supplies shop, has shown you don't have to spend a lot of time or money on social media engagement to spark online conversation about your brand. You can just stick a picture of Sid James on a bath and put that bath above your front door and someone in Singapore will spot a Tweet by @shitlondon about it and RT this to a hyperlocal blog in your area and soon the whole world is talking about you.

Anyway, Sids is a good shop. More of this sort of thing in Brockley please.

With thanks to b. who tweeted us about this.

They weren't that great when they quoted for my bathroom.

Brilliant story! But where is the @shitlondon tweet?

the lack of apostrophe enrages me every time i go past. I'm also not keen on people '0208'-ing but one step at a time

Do you fume passing Barclays, Selfridges and Boots as well, or is it just the little guys?

im happy to endorse Sids. They supplied a euro to UK tap fitting for £2.50 that B&Q were utterly clueless about.

Invaluable local resource. I saw I guy there recently with his problem carefully filmed on his iphone, go away with the fittings and no call out fee.
Also open on a Sunday morning now.

I'm sure you were smart enough to go elsewhere then. But that doesn't detract from their value as an interface between Joe and Jane public and the myssteerius world of pipe spout and faucet.
