Seems like we're going to have a fancy dress and costume shop in Forest Hill, next door to the Chinese herbal medicine place. Hmmm, now not wishing to pour cold water on attempts to revitalise Forest Hill but it seems like a strange choice of business for these parts. I suppose it's a good excuse to have a fancy dress New Year's Eve party. Your thoughts?

I seem to recall HOP has, or had for years a theatrical outfitters , or something like it.
I agree you would not think that much demand but we could be very surprised

I think there already is one - down behind Finches I think, but have never been - maybe they are simply moving premises to somewhere where people will actually realise they exist!

I think you'd be very surprised at how popular these kinds of shops are. For starters Hallowe'en is coming up. People do tend to have fancy dress parties quite a bit these days - I have two coming up in the next couple of weeks. Add children's birthday parties and a certian type of hen do into the mix and I think you've got a viable business venture.

The HoP one closed down years ago. Maybe that says something for the demand....
