Another convenience store has just opened along Kings Cross Road. The new store is located on the site of the former red-light Sauna and situated opposite the Cling hostel (former Clerkenwell Magistrate Court). It is currently selling a range of convenience goods and as stated to me by an assistant within in two or three weeks will also be selling alcoholic drinks. If one also counts the convenience store on the corner of Kings Cross Road and Frederick Street, there are now a total of eight stores on Kings Cross Road between the start of Kings Cross Road along Pentonville Road and the point where Kings Cross Road becomes Farringdon Road that sell a similar range of convenience groceries, alcohol and with some also acting as news-agents .
Just how many such stores could be too many, though? Personally I am not exactly excited by yet another store that sells over the counter alcohol, and over-priced groceries but what do others think?
