Decathlon becomes modern pentathlon

The Decathlon store in Surrey Quays is much-loved by Brockley Central readers. With the site being redeveloped, the shop's fate is probably of far more interest to you than any other aspect of the massive regeneration. So, we're happy to bring you this report from BCer Fintan:

"Half of Decathlon Surrey Quays has been demolished and what used to be there has been squashed into a remodelled remaining half. complete with mezzanine floor to accommodate some of the more exotic sports."

"Talking to the staff they said bof, but they were French. Others said that the store would be moving back into the building that will be built on the cleared site and then this half would be demolished and rebuilt. So we will not have to schlep over to Croydon for sporting odds and sodds even an on an interim basis."
