    It looks that way.

    I’d imagine it’s that the landlords have a completely unrealistic expectation of what rent they should charge so are driving away the small businesses people might actually want while they wait for a big chain to arrive and pay the big bucks!

    the flats haven’t been rented yet so I assume the power substation hasn’t been installed still.

    Anyone know why Mimosa has permanently closed? Dulwich Estates strikes again?

    (the Vauxhall and Kennington ones are still open)

    And now the Illusioneer is moving too (but looks to be to bigger premises).

    Mimosa's reason for closing in HH : "Rising costs, not enough café seating and an increase in online speciality food products were factors in our closure in Herne Hill."

    I went in there recently to buy sherry vinegar. I had to ask for the price (why? It’s embarrassing) and the same product was cheaper round the corner at Dugards.

    I’m (pleasantly) surprised The Illusioner has turned out to be successful. It seems to have been there for ages. The very first time I noticed it years ago I wondered if it was going to last long. But I guess there are plenty of local residents who are the right fit for that kind of business.

    I don’t think I’ve ever seen it it open though. But then that kind of business probably relies on by-appointment visits rather than walk-ins.

    bloody hell! Never thought I'd hear the phrase 'cheaper at Dugards'.

    Chicken Shop fans have the chance to buy the Morley's on Norwood Road for £150k at the moment...

    That looks like fun. It's a shame that building is currently inaccessible unless you can climb 3 flights of stairs. I know they can't do anything about that until they get longer term tenure.

    The Poly Styrene exhibition at 198 Gallery is well worth the visit.

    Do Morleys not want it?

    I wonder what the £150k gets you.

    I couldn't even rustle up £1,500 but, even if I could, I don't want a chicken shop. Never mind £1,500, I'd rather have £150 in cash rather than owning my own chicken shop. Working 18 hour days, smelling of fat, dealing with abusive drunks.
