Was at 190 London Road, Mitcham CR4 3LD, on the west side and north of junction with Bond Road. Motor parts, engineers tools and accessories shop.
As of January 2018 the building still displays the name Eddown but was sold in possibly 2013/4, with the owners moving to the south coast.
This Google StreetView from 2012 shows the shop with its For Sale sign.
A local motor dealer commented on the Mitcham History group on Facebook:
always a great service and nothing was ever too much trouble. No have to use another car parts company and fifty per cent of the time the parts are wrong

We used this auto parts shop a lot before it shut. If they delivered the wrong part they would say ‘It’s the right part. You have the wrong car…..!’
Great sense of humour.
