One of these days soonish, we'll buy a new TV. It won't be particularly swish or high-tech, but I'd be very pleased if it were to come from a local shop. I'd be especially pleased if it were to come from an independent shop rather than a local branch of a chain electronics store.

I can't think of anywhere. Can anyone suggest anything to help me please?

Thanks.

I'm a big supporter of local shops, but when it comes to electrical goods you should really shop around - try www.kelkoo.com. I bought a 32" Sony TV for under 600 (some time ago)...the cheapest 'high street' price was 1300.

Thanks. Now if anyone wants to answer the question I asked.....:0)

I'm struggling to think of somewhere independent.

There's a TV/radio shop on London Road between Elephant and St George's Circus but I'm not sure if it sells, rents or repairs?

As for chains:
Richer Sounds at London Bridge (on the walkway from needle to station)
Tesco OKR
Currys behind Tesco OKR.

I think that there are a couple of independent places on Whitechapel, not quite SE1, but fairly local.

Thanks. Any more suggestions, please keep them coming. I go by St G's Circus, so will have a look tonight. Would even be prepared (whisper it) to step outside SE1, but the nearer the better (not least since anything I buy will preferably end up coming home on the back of my scooter).

how big a TV are you buying?

There's a TV shop on OKR, almost opposite the Dun Cow Surgery, i think it's next to the Laundrette, and i would imagine it's just what you're looking for!

Lynnes Electrical on the Walworth Road. They repair as well.

The sort of size that's considered miniscule these days (i.e. about twice as big as a computer screen)

my computer screen is 21", so you're looking for 42" - about average i'd say.

you don't want it too small or you won't be able to see the players, and the ball.
