New Look to shut 100 stores – impact across SE London?

Trouble on the High Street continues with New Look seeking to close up to 100 branches across the UK.

They have yet to confirm what stores will shut. In south east London they operate in Woolwich, Lewisham, Bexleyheath, Bromley, Charlton and Rotherhithe, as well as Dartford in Kent.

The Woolwich branch is one of the biggest stores in the town. It was formerly a Littlewoods and Index store. It faces the former Marks and Spencer.

The rear of the building hangs over the rail lines making redevelopment tricky. If it didn’t, it’s easy to envisage a new build on the site.
