Moving day by boxplayer

Moving day

As I cycled home, went past what once had been Pizza Express. Piles of stuff in boxes outside, including the very recognisable sign, and a moving van. Walthamstow wasn't on the list of restaurants they said they were closing last year - but it's obviously made the cut.

Shame. Walthamstow's taken such a long time to 'come up in the world' with big chain presence like this. I know Pizza Express has been struggling anyway but coronavirus is obviously having a massive impact.

Haven’t been in a Pizza Express for ages but used to go regularly at one point- guessing that’s the problem (it’s not just us).

Maybe they're just having a declutter? I wonder if someone will help themselves to the sign - maybe it will appear on the antiques roadshow in a few years time?

I'm always sad to see local shops close - and I'm afraid no end to sight right now.

Oh dear that’s a sad sight...even if you never go inside it’s a local business that brings people in...another large building empty!

closed down shops and restaurants are such as depressing sight.

Such a shame this is happening to so many businesses around the world
