Wanstead Shops update: An answer for Andrews?

Normally reliable sources have told Wansteadium that the answer to what the future holds for Andrew’s Builders Merchants is… cloth.

  • In other news, children’s clothes shop and hair boutique Knock Down Ginger is now also hosting children’s parties.
  • The rather overplayed departure of Picture Perfect is now done. It is to be replaced with a framing shop. (True, but again, underwhelming.)
  • A fridge catastrophe in the Co-op on Friday night led to a run on Greek yoghurt and Frubes.
  • Letting agent Mike Molloy of Martin&co hit the Huffington Post this week.
  • The return of One Deko is imminent. It seems that it will still be selling transparent chairs.
  • New product line at The Larder is right in so many ways.
