Campaigners hoping to save a popular Brixton grocery store from closure are approaching 1,000 signatures on their petition.
The petition, which was started earlier this month, has now attracted the support of 878 people.
Pippa Couch, who helped to set up the petition, told the Brixton Blog: “Nour reflects the cultural diversity of the local community and the heritage of the market.
“If a popular store like Nour can’t manage to stay open in the newly popular market then I fear for the unique nature of the market. I would hate to see the bland chain stores take over as they did in Spitalfields. Whilst the new cafes and boutiques are great the essence of the world famous market must be protected.”
Supportive shoppers are also being asked to write a letter to the chief executive of InShops, Andrew Burnett, at the following address:
In Shops Ltd.
The Geraud Centre wholesale fruit & vegetable
Market Edge Lane
