This is Helen and Douglas House charity shop.

East Oxford Action used the empty furniture store at Nos 156 to 158 as their public consultation shop for the Cowley Road Matters design, which is responsible for the present curving pavements outside Tesco's. See Clare Symonds' paper "Cowley Road Matters; Community Transport and Road Design" (2005) and a photo here[1]. From a photo on page 48 of Annie Skinner's "Cowley Road A History" (2008) it appears that Orinoco the Oxfordshire Scrap Store was also located there
