Farmacia Urban Healing closed on Goodge Street

Sadness... walking to a meeting last week I was stopped in my tracks by the now boarded-up store front for the Goodge Street Farmacia Urban Healing... which apparently is to be replaced with YET ANOTHER BLOODY CHAIN STORE. Another EAT. Great. I was thinking just the other day that what London needed was another franchised fast food eatery instead of a lovely corner chemist.

If you're not familiar with Farmacia Urban Healing, it's a sweet small pharmacy/chemist/urban healing/urban spa company. If you want to visit them, you now must go to Harrods or Selfridges.
