Locals Pay Their Respects To Mr Adamou Senior
The passing of long-time Chiswick resident saddens customers
Mr Tony Adamou sadly died on Monday 2nd January 2006.
A familiar face a the family owned grocery and delicatessen on the Chiswick High Road, Mr Adamou Senior will be missed by all those who frequented the shop.
Chiswickw4.com forum members expressed their feelings at the news by saying:
"Tony Adamou the man and his shop are valued Chiswick legends. Much sympathy to everyone close to the family."
"A lovely old man who ran what I always thought was a 'proper' shop, full of produce inside, with the veg/fruit boxes spilling out onto the pavement. Our friends still come from miles away just for the olives."
"Mr Adamou is as much of an institution to Chiswick as Fouberts or probably even more than that - just can't think of a good analogy."
Mr Adamou was also known by some locally as a fair-minded and conscientious landlord.
T Adamou & Sons were recently awarded the high acclaim of offering the best quality sprouts in London by the Evening Standard.
The shop remained closed this week whilst the family was in mourning. It is expected that Mr Adamou's sons will reopen soon and continue to run this cherished local business by their father's high standards.
