I'm not sure why we should get excited about M&S opening. Another chain store selling much the same stuff as the other chain stores.
Much more exciting is Hugh's post about Olivier Chard , a real French baker baking goods that he really cares about, which look excellent, though I haven't tried them yet.
And I buy my (English) cheese from The Micro Cheese Monger, I am just checking to find out if Sarah still delivers to N4.
This all sounds like a bit of a long shot to me. I'm not sure a M&S Foodhall would be viable on such a small site, especially given all the local competition from shops along Green Lanes. Still, we can but hope!
A Waitrose would be nice.
So here's another bit of news. A large M&S foodhall is currently being fitted up in the newly done up Finsbury Park Station. I have this from someone working on the construction. It's definite and coming soon.
Facebook page here, last post 5 October.
"Hi all, please be advised we have no confirmed opening date for store opening at this moment.
We look forward to welcoming you all soon".
Address Goodwin Street, Finsbury Park, London, N4 3HQ ( towards the new Finsbury Park tube entrance).
have anyone got any updates on this? Seems like there is a lots of work happening right now on this shop, I am wondering if it is M&S or something else?
Pretty sure another thread said it's a second branch of Dobar. The M&S idea was their central office confusing Finsbury Park and Harringay I think....
Yes, Dobar put in the planning application for change of use. Work is racing ahead. When I first read ‘big post office’ I thought it was the old WH Smith!
That is terrible news.. It’s basically a stripper club pretending to be a restaurant.
Another epic fail from our local council
Dobar is a brunch place at Manor House. Sure you're thinking of the right place?
I think you might have got mixed up. It’s a brunch/lunch place with a branch by Manor House tube station
I'm not quite sure where you sourced this from. We will be operating as a family run brasserie. Please feel free to come down to view the premises and of course happy to show you pictures of what it will look like.
