What is going to replace The Barbican Fruiterers & Greengrocers?

Upmarket flower shop, to eat into the profits of the local Waitrose.....

I’ve known John for 45 years.  Although I wish him a happy retirement, it’ll be so sad to see his shop go.  I have fond memories of helping him spray paint twigs and branches silver and gold, when preparing for Christmas (I was 8 years old at the time) helping Johns Dad, Tom lugging the Christmas Trees from the back of the shop. 

My Brother working on Saturdays and school Holidays, and of course buying our fruit and veg and plants from him.

He will be missed so very much, one of the original shopkeepers along the parade.

I wish you good luck, and a very happy well deserved retirement John .  I just hope we do not have the misfortune to have another Costa,Starbucks,Pret!! 

Hi Tracy

I believe a new greengrocer is taking over.  I so hope it will also sell plants.  I believe it will reopen in a couple of weeks, so we will see then.
