It leaves a pretty big gap in central croydon. One which i assume will be a long time empty. Are there still plans for westfield to take over the whitgift centre. George street, st georges walk cannot afford to really become anymore run down.

Westfield presumably whilst being a bit soulless would be a god send for croydon. Who else is going to have the money to invest in the area. It is so needed as well.

We we're looking for a new 3 piece suite recently and looked in Allders as they we're advertising massive discounts. Even after 50/60% off most of their suites were 5000.00+.
Guess I'm more of a DFS kind of guy

Westfield are meant to be regenerating The Whitgift while Hammersons are doing Centrale,well The Drummond part of it anyway.

Still sad news when you consider that Croydon once was recognised as the best shopping centre outside The West End not so long back.

Yes sad to see a lovely long established store go under, a sign of the times i suppose. I must admit i have some good and bad memories, the good,who could forget the "bargain basement" of the 70's, also being able to buy most items without having to go to central london. Yes you got a comprehensive choice in a good envioronment. Now for the bad, I was with my wife and son aged 3 buying an icecream, this was early 80's i believe, the stall was on the 1st floor near the rear exit, when this girl with a baby in a push chair, who as it turned out had been stopped for shoplifting and as it also turned out was high on drugs, being held by security men in the room opposite, then she decided to walk out before the police arrived. With all the shouting and swearing that was going on my wife unfortunately happened to look in the direction of this woman who then turned on my wife with all the usual that follows, when i said to her "do you mind not swearing at my wife" and that was all i said. But it was like waving a red rag to a bull, she pulled out a knife and stabbed me in the chest saying take that, thankfully in a slashing motion, so i was not very seriously injured. Police arrived and she was arrested and charged, went to court (3 day trial), found guilty of GBH, but it seemed as she had a baby, and even though had a previous history of assualts got away with a fine. I was left dumbfounded, good old British justice. All this happened just by wanting to buy my son an icecream.
