Supermarket on London Road. There's a butcher's counter too.

As well as a fresh vegetable display out the front photo, they also sell various frozen greens; names noted in November 2012 were fumbua eru leaves, ogou leaves, and biiteku-tek folon leaves. There was also a freezer full of different sizes of tilapia fish.

According to a photo on Flickr, as of 1989 the premises were vacant.

By mid-2012 it was an African supermarket called Cosco, occupying two adjoining shopfronts at 64 and 66 London Road photo, but in early 2012 it gave up number 66 to Kodo's Barber. In early 2013, it changed its name from Cosco photo to African Food Centre, though little else seemed to change.

As of January 2012, the frontage advertised African, Afro-Caribbean, and Asian groceries, along with halal meat, fish, grocery, fruit & veg, and bakery. The butcher's counter was definitely still there in April 2012.

Existence last checked in December 2014.
