Day One - Anerley Road, SE19

You wonder how an off-licence chain can go bust in binge-drinking Britain, but Unwins did, just in time for Christmas 2005. Eighteen months on, my local branch is still empty - obviously not one of the 200 shops that Thresher bought up.

This stretch of Anerley Road is remarkably lifeless, given its proximity to the station and lots of nice middle-class homes. You'd think someone would want to use the several closed-down premises around here for something other than advertising Billy Smart's Circus.
