Londis Convenience Store


Londis is a contemporary convenience store on the south side of Glasgow Road that also houses the Low Blantyre Post Office.

As of Summer 2016, the property is for sale. Blantyre Post Office is an extremely well run business that has been run by the current proprietors since 1994. The property has been placed on the market due to the current vendors wish to retire. The business trades throughout the year, and offers an excellent range of general groceries, gifts and fancy goods along with main post office. It enjoys much repeat custom, particularly due to its excellent reputation and extensive range of produce along with gifts and fancy goods.

Do you remember or know what Londis was previously?

On social media:

Ronnie Woods Think it was a video shop
Elizabeth Dobson Grieve Was it not the coop butchers
Caroline Rundell was it not a furniture shop previously too?
Ray Couston Clydestar Video Shop?

When I was a kid, I remember the back bit was the video/brick-a-brac shop.The front of it just before the stairs and ramp was the convenience store.

I don’t think it was a Londis until about 12-15 years ago. I think it might’ve been an independent store before that ran under the family name but it had the Clydestar Video Store sign on the front.

Lynsey Fojut I remember it being a video shop.
