PharmacyAlessandro Filipik opened Il Picchio (the Woodpecker) - a new Italian café and deli - on the Triangle on March 18 (2006) from the site previously occupied by Amelie’s. Meanwhile, over the road, Moss pharmacy will leave the Triangle in June, and an application has been made to turn the former Shell petrol station up the road into a retail store.

Residents will have to make their way to Thorold Road for their prescriptions when Moss pharmacy leaves the Triangle in June. A new facility is being built by PMP Health Developments where the old health clinic used to be. The Bitterne Park GP Surgery is leasing the ground floor and the Primary Care Trust will lease the first and second floor for its health clinic. The pharmacy has made plans with PMP Health Developments to be included at the site.

Opposite Thorold Road, Plessey Investments Ltd have applied to turn the former Shell petrol station into "a single-storey retail store with associated car parking and servicing area".

Alessandro Filipik in new Italian café  Il Picchio on the Triangle. He'll be serving coffees, teas, pasta, panini, focaccia, puddings and more.

I would welcome a Tesco Express on the old BP site, or at least another petrol station. I don't mind using Co-Op for some things, but find them rather expensive.

It wasn't a BP site, it was Shell until recently. I would have thought most Bitterne Park residents would know that.
This isn't going have a petrol station - that's another service which is being monopolised by large supermarket chains.

Any news about objecting to Tesco Express on the old Shell site, there seems to be a lot of action. I don't like the idea of a Tescos being there, the loss of the Chemist is a bad enough blow.

Yikes, it's hard enough turning right out of St Catherine's Rd as it is!
Anyone know what's happening with the old Moss chemist shop?

Can anyone tell me if they would find a local Optician at The Triangle useful? Would local people use it?
