Costcutter (Old Coulsdon)

Costcutter, 1-2 The Parade, 266 Coulsdon Road, Old Coulsdon, Borough of Croydon, London CR5, 2001 A half-timbered Costcutter! There’s posh. Now has a sign saying “Old Coulsdon” stuck over the word Costcutter – a term no doubt considered offensively downmarket in this affluent suburb (though clearly not affluent enough to attract a Waitrose).
