    Not a clue, it's a bombsite at the moment. I think it was a far bigger job than they first realised. Will keep my eyes peeled, pretty much go by it everyday.

    makes you wonder what they're doing with it if it's a big job as it had only recently been fully refurbished!

    Aye, but part of the ceiling fell in around October I think. So they brought forward the works. Structurally, i think it must have been in shocking state.

    Pretty common in big old boozers, it’s probably not been well looked for 50 or 60 years.

    I've seen him with trolleys full of reduced veg from morrisons which disappear into his stocks. He also takes pride in picking up 'on the turn' fancy stuff from the wholesale market so their stocks appeal to local foodies (he told me about this a few years ago).
    Still expensive for the consumer and we don't know where his wasted produce ends up.
    Dunno why you assume so much about my shopping preferences. I am absolutely sure none of the excess/waste from the place I get my veg is chlorinated or disposed of unethically.

    17-year-old girl stabbed to death in south London

    A 17-year-old girl has been stabbed to death in south London.

    The teenager died after she was attacked and knifed in Camberwell on Thursday.

    Police and paramedics raced to an address in Brisbane Street shortly after midday.

    A spokeswoman for the Metropolitan Police said officers, London Ambulance Service and London's Air Ambulance all attended.

    Medics fought to save her but she was pronounced dead at the scene.

    A 21-year-old man, who police said was known to the girl, has been arrested on suspicion of murder and was taken into custody at a south London police station.

    The spokeswoman said: "Next of kin have been made aware.A crime scene is in place at the address.

    "There are no road closures.The Met’s Homicide and Crime Command has been informed."

    On both counts (see my emphasis) – so what? The result is a shop with a wider selection than any other working-class greengrocers I can think of. It's well-known that supermarkets chuck out stuff that's looking scraggly but which could still serve perfectly well – so if he wants to buy it and give it more of a chance to be eaten, and make a small profit in the process, that's fine by me (I'm not the sort of moron who imagines that supermarkets and greengrocers make their produce from a different type of atoms). Cruson's prices are more than East Street but much less than a farmers' market – things that are on their last legs are in a separate part of the shop and priced accordingly.

    As for what they do with their waste – the point is that since they keep stuff on display until just at the point where it would genuinely be no use to anyone, anything they do chuck is genuinely ready for the bin.

    Obviously making my own assumptions about where you shop – but if you're going to make such stupid comments, then that's what you can expect :cool:

    I think Cruson is overpriced and overhyped. That's all. Not stupid

    "I rate myself 'not stupid'"

    Aim higher next time, and more people might be convinced.
