Tony Magdi: Gone, But Not Forgotten
It’s just over a year since I posted the sad story of local greengrocer Tony Magdi. Tony has gone, but it’s fitting that, around a year after his death, his team have re-opened the shop on Portland Road in Hove. The shop still features brimming bowls of fresh fruit and veg, sold in £ lots (Tony couldn’t be doing with copper). Whether the business plan still includes generous handouts of fruit and veg. to customers, we’ll have to see. But if you want to resist the AsdaTescoSainsburyifcation of the UK, supporting independent shops like Tony Magdi’s is a good place to start.
