Does anyone know if Millets in Lewisham still open? The store finder doesn't list it any more.

Think it was another casualty of the decline of Lewisham Town Centre :-(

branches can be found in Bromley and Croydon.

Lewisham is somehow regarded as the most successful town centre according to the FT. http://www.ft.com/cms/s/0/378dc892-7442-...z1q7UGE9Qe

FT Wrote:
Lewisham and Wood Green in greater London have emerged as two of the best high street trading locations for retailers nationwide, thanks to their proximity to affluent communities who “top up shop” locally to avoid the trouble of travelling to the West End or Bluewater.

I shop in Lewisham quite often - I pop into Peter James butcher for meat then go to the market for the wonderful array of fruit and veg. I believe in supporting local business

It's very sad indeed if Millets has closed down - although only a small branch the staff are friendly and helpful and they had everything I need for camping Sad I'll have to go to Croydon now

I think its more to do with the whole Millets/Blacks company being in difficulty than anything to do with Lewisham....
