I received this message today. Does anyone have any information to assist?

I wonder if you can help me....I am trying to find out when Perks  a grocers situated on the corner of Longley Road Rainham closed and ceased trading.

Hope you can help


This photo of Perks Grocers was from the late 1950s - around 1957/58

That’s the same question I want to ask, did they cease trading or change their name? I remember their spam, my mum sent me to buy but by the time I’d got home, I’d eaten most of it! They were situated by Holloway Rd tube station

As a kid i remember slab cake and biscuits in tins with glass tops. i use to take the bottles back and get a couple of eggs that mum boiled for me and i ate in the garden, pure heaven!

Lest we run out of Richards let me reiterate. Perk's sausages really tasted delicious! Hmmmmmmm

Would you believe, yet another Richard of Rainham said
"Was it that Perk's sausages were so exceptional or was it we were all so hungry as a previous Richard said?

Either way, they were superb to my family!

I agree Richard about Perk's sausages but also remember we were always hungry too!

All I can contribute is 'Perks Sausages' were legendary in my youth spent in Rainham !
