I seem to whinge a lot about shops closing down so I decided to keep quiet about Appetito going under. I’ve not even speculated (much) as to whether Costa coming to Catford had a knock on effect. But the loss of the Chinese restaurant King’s Chow Mein is something I have to mention. King’s has been around for at least 15 years (if not more) and it made for an easy take away choice on the way home. Sad to see it go.
Not sure about the need for security measures unless Catford now has a squatter problem. Mmm.
As one door closes
Back in June I put on my Chicken Little hat and moaned about the sky falling in when Risky and Internacionale closed their doors. With WHSMith closed too, the Shopping Centre was looking a little bleak (some would say it looks bleak regardless of the empty shops). Anyway, two new shops have popped up. Give a warm Catford welcome to Store Twenty One and Blue Inc.
I had a quick browse round Store Twenty One, it sells clothes and an assortment of household items.
Blue Inc hadn’t opened yet but a notice in the window says you can order stuff from their website and get it delivered to your local store.
