I can confirm that this is in Southampton (my local city) and has been like this for around 2 years now. It`s on the outskirts of the city, near the site of the old Meridian TV studios.

@Doiknowyou: "I wonder if pet sounds was a beach boys reference"

It HAS to be, wouldn`t you think? I`m impressed that you got that, mate, considering the age on your profile. Well done!

man...that is more depressing to me than the broken down, abandoned store fronts because these places look so awesome, and then you`re all like...oh yeah, they`re fake. It`s trolling you.

Looks depressing, I wonder how long before the urban trash spray paint their stupid tags all over it?

Brilliant artistry.

Sad that such shops, which not so long ago were the norm, are now nothing but fairy tales.

Wonder if this is Northan in Southampton? Mmm- will ask someone to look.. see what I can find. quite a few of these 1960`s things are bring knocked down in favour of more `livable` space- what they meanof course is smaller houses to cram more people into..

How do we know they`re closed permanently?
Maybe it`s just early Sunday morning.
