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.




As a private renter with a young family, the cost of living is extremely high.

Support me and the site via Paypal here which allows me to focus time on researching and writing posts alongside taking photographs to document changes. Adverts are far from enough to cover living costs.

I also have a Facebook page for the site here

Thank you

I've lived in south east London most of my life growing up in Greenwich borough and working in the area for many years. The site has contributors on occasion and we cover many different topics. Living and working in the area offers an insight into what is happening locally.
