Residents living on Greenwich Peninsula finally have more choice of local supermarkets they’ve long asked for after co-op opened today on Chandlers Avenue.
For an area with so many homes the area around Greenwich Millennium Village and homes to the north have lacked much choice. It was often a pretty unpleasant walk (or drive) down to Bugsby’s Way.
It’s somewhat surprising it’s taken so long for more supermarkets to open on the Peninsula. Tesco Express on a heaving gig night wasn’t a great prospect.
Curiously though, the future master plan for thousands more homes also lacks much in the way of commercial space for local supermarkets to cater for 15,000 more homes – and recent revisions reduced planned space for shops.
Over in Charlton and work on a new Lidl at Bugsbys Way is also well underway.
