Day 25: Site Visit

With trading location confirmed and an opening date set for 3rd May, we arranged to visit the #DessertShopOfDreams for a recce.

One of the remarkable things about Model Market is that it’s a repurposed 1950s Afro-Caribbean market that once the Lewisham community. You can still see the old shop headboards like “Superstyle Hair Studio” and “Shafiq’s Electronics” speaking to the history of the place.

The original shop front gave us loads of great lines and features to work with, including a service hatch on the right hand side that’s perfect for collection or a quick peak in. Internally we were able to get a feel for our layout and the customer journey from start to finish.

Armed with measurements, photographs and a feel for the space we could now start planning the refit. Look out for “after” shots in less than 4 weeks time.🌞
