You may have noticed that EveryBodies Music has left the yellow shop on the corner of West Green Road and the High Road, and moved into the newly refurbished smaller shop next door. In a world of declining CD and LP sales, downsizing like this is obviously a good survival move.
The old shop is to become a Costa Coffee. So we now have two High Street multiples (not counting the bookies) in Seven Sisters, without anything being demolished.
The plans for the Costa shopfront have now been published, at HGY/2013/1319 (illuminated signs) and HGY/2013/1321 (shop front). It looks like a bog-standard aluminium frame design, which is a bit cheap considering this is a conservation area and LBH has done such a good restoration job further north up the High Road in shops of a similar vintage.
This was the original target site for Paddy Power, so we can at least be grateful that that was moved round into a smaller site next door on West Green Road.
