Just spoke briefly with one of the people fitting out the little shop on Snowsfields near The Rose . They're hoping to open tomorrow night.

whatever happened to the good old-fashioned newsagent that opened from 7-5 Monday to Saturday and closed at 2pm on a Sunday? In an area bursting with 24-hour 'convenience' stores, do we really need another? Why couldn't it be something a little more unique?

How come I don't know of any 24-hour convenience stores within walking distance of Bermondsey Street?

What we really need is a 24-hour pharmacy.

Costcutter on Tower Bridge road near the junction with Tanner St is 24hr, and the new one on Snowsfields is a minute if that from the Bermondsey St - Crucifix Lane - St Thomas St junction.

There's a new convenience shop and Internet Cafe on Long Lane next to City Walk, which has just opened.
However, I haven't seen anyone go inside...

Ive used both the Long Lane and Snowsfield stores, coincidentally over the last couple of days. More utilitarian than aesthetically pleasing in both cases - they had what I wanted! If we dont need either, then Im sure market forces will wield their sythes.
