Home Bargains are to open their new Charlton store next month after previously giving a provisional estimate of “early 2021”.
The store takes over the former Wickes shop at Brocklebank retail park on Bugsby’s Way.
Home Bargains have relatively few stores in London and could be a major driver of visitors to the area. The only other branch in south east London is out in Orpington.
The chain have grown quickly and is extremely popular in various parts of the country. The shop isn’t great for accessibility on foot via bus stops. Desire lines show how people travel – if physically able.
If not it’s a traipse round via the car park entrance. This could have been sorted during construction of the retail park, but wasn’t.
