The latest addition to Surbiton...

9 years ago... another betting shop.

There seems to have been a lot of grumbling on here about whether or not Pizza Express is a good thing or not, meanwhile Coral have pulled off a masterstroke.

Some might assume that Surbiton is already very well-served for betting shops, and that there was no need for another one only two doors down from William Hill, but Coral have been very clever as their target clientele are bound to use their shop as it is 10 metres closer to the Coronation Hall.

Seriously, I do find it quite bizarre that betting shops are opening anywhere now. Surely this is something that is easier/better to do online. I suppose the same goes for estate agents, though, and if the internet kills off both of those then Surbiton high street will be left half empty.
