Longdan Oriental Supermarket will replace H&M

As the largest Vietnamese food importer in the UK, with over 6,000 specialty products, Longdan Oriental Supermarket have served millions of customers every year, in both their retail and online stores.

It is promising to see new business opening in the town centre and is a sign that Crawley is on it’s way to financial recovery.

With all this excitement happening, we asked shoppers in the town centre on their thoughts of new shops opening:

hmv will replace DW Sports Store

Peter Jarvis, Northgate said: “Jolly good, I was disappointed when HMW closed actually. What’s going to go into Debenhams?”

Jenny Hand, Copthorne said: “I hadn’t noticed that there was any. I know Specsavers have moved. I know H&M has closed. It would be nice to see a bit more. I know rents are very high.”

Jill Carter, Maidenbower said: “It’s great, I love hmv.”

Marion Williams, Southgate said: “That would be nice to see a Oriental Supermarket”
