Morrisons supermarket set to open in Acre Lane, Brixton

The supermarket chain Morrisons is set to open in a new building on Acre Lane, Brixton.

The store applied to Lambeth council for a licence to serve alcohol from 7am until 11pm, seven days per week.

The supermarket looks set to occupy the ground floor of a new residential development opposite the Grand Union pub.


  1. Bring it on! All we had for years was a Tesco whose monopoly has enabled it to provide a pitiful service and treat its customers with near contempt. I am longing for the new Sainsburys about to open at the top of Effra Road and welcome the announcement of a new Morrisons on Acre Lane

    • The new Sainsbury’s in Tulse Hill might also make the Tesco Express afew hundred yards further up on Tulse Hill buck up its ideas and customer focus. The queues in that store are horrendous and they never have all the tills open. You are lucky if more than 3 are operating, even at peak times. The queue can get longer and all the staff do is continue to unpack cages of produce onto the shelves. Also what grates is that Tesco gives priority to those purchasing fuel. Why does it need to do this? Because the tills are not operating fully, so if priority we’re not given to fuel buyers then it would be crazy on the forecourt with cars waiting their turn for fuel. Ironic as the fuel is from Esso so basically Tesco is giving priority to those profiting another company. Tesco Tulse Hill will just become a petrol station when the new Sainsbury’s opens unless they get their act together and place Tesco customers at the front of their ethos and service.

  2. I don’t know if this is better or worse than the Duke of Wellington, with it’s crackhouse at the back, and it’s shootings.

  3. That will make it 3 supermarkets in a relatively short stretch of Acre Lane – Tesco, Lidl, and Morrisions.

  4. Another big supermarket! All we need now is Asda and we have covered all bases to suck the life out of local shops & Markets.
