i agree TBR could do with some rejuvination but I don't agree Tesco in whatever guise (Metro, Express, etc) is the answer. It doesn't matter what direction you walk in from the Bricklayers' Arms, you will come across a Tesco store within a five-minute walk (Long Lane
, Southwark Park Road, E & C and OKR). Local businesses in Deptford have complained that business has dropped by over 50% since the arrival of Tesco.
I don't know what it is that TBR needs to re-invent itself, but I don't think it is another Tesco store.
