Supermarket giant Sainsbury’s has pulled out of plans to open a new store in Belsize Park.
The chain has decided not to proceed with a proposed store in the burned down Good For You toy shop in Haverstock Hill.
The plans sparked a large reaction, with more than 470 people signing a petition calling for Sainsbury’s to back off.
A Sainsbury’s spokesman told the Ham&High: “We are interested in opening a new shop on Haverstock Hill.
“However we have been unable to agree a commercial deal with the developer and have decided not to progress our plans at Belsize Park Station.
