Now, at last, Jones of Brockley has revealed itself. It's will join Pat-a-Cakes on that stretch and work has begun:

Great news

I hope it's an Internet cafe!!!

Shame said...

I wish it was an Aldi

Crofty said...

I live 20 seconds away... this is going to be dangerous, especially if they sell good bread. Mind you that internet cafe was a lifesaver on occasion, sad it's gone.

Mark Racz said...

Any detail about what sort of "food store"? We could do with a mainly fruit&veg store.

FintonStack said...

Yes, they're totally going to put an Aldi in a 400sqft unit.

Greg said...

We've got nothing but fruit and veg stores.

We need more shops selling honest grub for the common man.

Why is it dangerous, what are you going to do? Should I be calling the police or your helper?

Shame said...

Whooosh!! Totally, dude.


(This was totally a reference to the massive argument that was happening on another thread yesterday)

Crofty said...

Dangerous because I suspect it'll be expensive and I could end up buying stuff I don't actually need and spending money I shouldn't spend. But thank you for the heckle, always very entertaining.

Headhunter said...

What would "honest grub for the common man" consist of? You can't get much more honest and salt of the earth than plain vegetables!

Headhunter said...

The internet cafe was a lifesaver? In the age of home wifi and smart phones and tablets does anyone still use internet cafes?!

Terrorists?

fauxostrich said...

glad for it, but Budgen's sells most stuff I need last minute. side-note: retailers, please stop putting 'Brockley' in the name of every store. we know where we are and it ain't fifth avenue.

Algernonian said...

Fair comment, but with a name like Jones, it does need a bit of differentiation.

terry said...

Particularly when the shop isn't in Brockley, but Crofton Park etc etc

Guest said...

Except you know, Crofton Park was the original Brockley.


BrocSoc may try their damnest to claim the exclusive Brockley title for their precious conservation area, but we won't go down without a fight.

Ewhuster said...

It is apparently going to be mainly a greengrocer, according to the word from other local shopowners. Ace!

Crofton Park was always Crofton Park, it was never Brockley. When I was a kid, Crofton Parkers thought they were better than us Brockleyers. Just because we then got Conservation status, they want to claim us. ha ha ha.
