Chain Clothing Company Moves To Camden High Street

The empty glass building on Camden High Street by the lock will soon be filled, to mixed reactions from the locals. The news that the up-market, chain clothing store All Saints will soon be occupying the space left vacant by Fopp has worried nearby shop owners that Camden will soon be pushing out independent companies — a fear supported by the H&M Divison that opened recently and the American Apparel planned for further down the road.

In fairness to All Saints, the London-based company boasts a flagship store on Commercial Street where it is the only chain store (and though not exactly comparing like for like, Fopp was a chain itself). The space had originally been purchased by Somerfield — who had planned to turn it into a massive off license, thus providing a solution to the shortage of cheap booze in Camden — but the plans were scrapped in May.
