So they are closing giving no reason for the closure and giving Colliers Wood as an alternative. Totally useless for me and out of the way. If Smithscarries on with closures they will totally disappear. We already have three banks in Wimbledon why another, we need useful shops or we will turn into another Morden which has charity shops galore and precious little else of any use.

Does Fielders still stock books? It did when I was at school in Wimbledon (though that is a while ago)

Can anyone explain to me why Metro Bank would want to take on a new lease on this large site right now, given that if Crossrail have their way that whole block will be completely demolished in some 5 year's time to make way for a new Tramlink terminus?

Metro Bank have said it's going to be a regional training centre for their staff (as well as a normal bank) - hence them needing that space.

Well that's a shame. Especially about the Waterstones :( I hope they relocate somewhere else in Wimbledon. With WHSMith and Waterstones closing there isn't many book stores left.It's a shame it's a bank taking the premises as well. Obviously they are needed to an extent but they don't exactly add much character to the area. I must say though that it seems too much space for a Metro bank to take up. WHSmith would be large enough let alone the addition of Cargo and Waterstones?

The rumour is that it could be Metro Bank. It seems Cargo is closing, as well as WH Smith and Waterstones.WH Smith closes next week. More info here:http://www.wimbledonsw19.com/default.asp?section=info&page=wimbledonwhsmithistoclose001.htm
