Eastern European Food Store, 171 London Road
Grocery shop on London Road. It opened in October 2017.
Around half of the space is taken up by soft drinks (both chilled and on regular shelves), but it also stocks things like biscuits, teas, coffee, tinned vegetables, and pickles.
In early 2015, both this unit and the one next door opened as a branch of Cash And Carry Beds, 1 Derby Road photo. At some point though, Cash And Carry Beds reduced its operations to just this unit, and it was gone completely by mid-2016 (though the Derby Road branch remained open).
Around June 2016 a mobile phone and computer repair shop, internet cafe, and dressmaker/tailor called Croydon Mobiles And Computer Repairs opened up photo. By October 2016 this had become Needlez, offering "stitching & alterations" photo, but this closed down some time between March and July 2017.
As of early October 2017 a sign reading "Eastern European Food Store" had appeared photo, but this didn't appear to be quite open yet. It was open by late October, and a member of staff confirmed that at that point it had been open less than two weeks.
