shopping habits

Rob has always shopped day to day. He used to shop for fruit and veg at the Open Market and wonders why he no longer does

I used to use the Open Market a lot more which I don't now. I'm not quite sure why that is..except things don't seem to last too well from there. When I was working down at the Art college I used to shop on the way home. I've always shopped day to day, maybe do one bigger shop a week but then its only 3 shopping bags, it doesn't get any bigger than that - no car. Not often the supermarket though. Now when I lived in Norfolk Terrace it was Waitrose where I shopped

Although Rob remembers shopping at Waitrose, he maintains he rarely uses Sainsbury's which is located only a few minutes away from where he now lives.

When he moved in to the road in 1983, Sainsbury's had not yet been built at the Vogue Gyratory

There used to be a cobbler's either opposite the chip shop opposite me or the next block along where the architect's is now. Locally, along this road I don't remember many more shops but the Lewes Road itself was a mass of small shops. There were 3 greengrocers, a wet fish shop, all sorts of things which have disappeared, but that's all really since the arrival of Sainsburys at the gyratory.
