I hear that Co-op is taking over the Costcutter store in Scott's Sufferance Wharf (Dockhead/Jamaica Road/Tooley Street) and will be opening a metro-type store. They are already advertising for staff...
Interesting - I heard a similar rumour a couple of weeks about another local Costcutter which was owned by the same people as the Dockhead one (Sunstar Group) - I asked the Co-op press office and they wouldn't comment (but didn't deny it either) so something would seem to be afoot.
Costcutter on Tower Bridge Road is going to become a Co-Op too... went this morning to get some milk and shocked to see virtually half the shelves empty.. If anyone planning on making a low-budget apocolypse-coming movie now is the time to get some very easy shots of a supermarket down to it's last dregs..
Used to do the cheapest Leffe in town - £1.19 a bottle. Bargain.
