Historical version 21 of Opan, 204 London Road
Business premises on London Road, vacant as of June 2018.
Around the end of 2013/start of 2014 it was taken over by the owner of Ellalan Supermarket a few doors down, and renamed to Ellalan Convenience Store. In this incarnation it sold storecupboard products, loo roll, cleaning products, etc. Nothing particularly out of the ordinary, though there were a few South Indian products (parathas, vadai) in one of the freezers. The off licence selection included a few relatively interesting bottled real ales. Also sold sweets and soft drinks.

Ellalan Convenience Store closed down some time between December 2015 and June 2018, though the larger premises at 234-236 remained open.
