    I reckon it will become another pound shop. Or Sainsbury's will move there because it's a bigger site. :hmm:

    It can't be another cheap shop. We already have Poundland and now the new 99p shop

    I've got my fingers crossed for a Primark.

    I'd quite like a Waitrose as I still have never been in one...



    Oh! No!


    Part of me does too.



    :oops:

    I don't think a Waitrose is very likely. :D

    Primark is a possibility, I suppose, but I hope not as I'm trying to give up cheap clothes (which apparently make up 30% of landfill these days and are made in sweat shops).

    Be a real shame to lose Woolies with its iconic lettering outside.

    I'd like Brixton Cycles to have the space, please.

    (yeah, right)

    Expensive clothes are made in sweatshops too and they would account for a larger percentage of landfill if other types of landfill are being recycled instead...

    Balham is only a short trip away if you get rail from Streatham Hill. ;)

    This would be funny if it wasn't a distinct possibility :eek:

    Ha! At least there's no chance of that. The recession does have *some* benefits I suppose :D

    Cheap clothes are often worn a couple of times (disposable fashion, innit?) and then thrown away whereas expensive ones last much longer. Plus cheap clothes are more likely to be made of man-made fibres that can't be recycled. :(

    Personally cheap clothes are as likely to be kept and worn for years or just not thrown out, just in case, and expensive clothes are often worn once and shoved in the back of a wardrobe. Both should be recycled. I don't see how man-made fibres can't have a life after clothes.

    Not that you're not right. Just pointing out that some people labour under the misapprehension that spending more on clothes = not buying clothes made in sweatshops and that the percentage isn't just affected by Primark et al.

    That's lucky because avoiding Primark won't save you from them.
