Hello, Local Friend Chinese take away in lower Sydenham is now a building supplies shop and I have spied some refurbishment taking place inside what was once called Premier Foods (I think) on the corner of Hazel Grove and Sydenham Road.

I dont think the old Local friend is a building supplies shop, the sign outside is for the builders that are re-developing the property and building a new extension. Spoke to them the other day and they don't know what it is going to be yet as it is yet to be leased/made fit for purpose.

Ah I see. Thank you for clarifying that. Hopefully it'll lift that end a little bit. I think sydenham has so much potential and I really hope to see some positive changes :)

I think we all do!

I noticed another shop on the High Street looks like it has been let. Painted yellow on the outside not far from Co-op - any ideas?

Looks like Gabisco is shutting, although I don't know how they survived so long as it hardly seemed to be open and had virtually no stock!

Bad news about Carzone. They were very helpful and offered good value. The mechanic at the rear provided a useful service as well.

Carzone I believe replaced The Good Olde Record Forum . The highlight of the high street in the 60's . I think better if car shops on side roads , like Volkspares , not good addition to posh high street.

As for carpet shop. Sad , surely need for a carpet shop in SE 26. Perhaps new owner will PILE in.

Their stock was incredibly expensive and not very attractive so not a surprise. I've found great vintage stuff at Sydenham Beds - G Plan chests of drawers and the like for a fraction of the price you'd pay elsewhere.

Do keep up Tim!

Will be a loss. Nowhere to buy a rug now after the sad loss of Ken Lloyd last year.
Michael has been trading from there since before I got to Syndeham 16 years ago.
