David Greig was the supermarket chain founded by the Greig family of Hornsey, North London. The David Greig chain was a rival to Sainsbury's having been established in 1870. The first store opened in Brixton and eventually expanded across London and the south east and dominated Brixton including this one on Coldharbour Lane.
By the 1960's there were more than 220 Greig shops but sadly the empire came to a swift end due to several deaths in the family in quick succession with death duties and obligatory inheritance tax crippling business. This shop front sign was until very recently exposed following the closure of a previous business but has now been removed.
