Harringay online

Harringay, Haringey - So Good they Spelt it Twice!

I was thinking it could be useful to start a post on what is open at the moment, as beyond supermarkets (chains & local) it is a bit unpredictable. I did an exercise cycle to Stoke Newington today, which helped my research....

For example, hardware shops are allowed to be open, but very few are - neither Lynbo, Lido nor Homebase are as far as I have seen. I spotted that KAC hardware on Stoke Newington Church street is open, and apparently Screwfix are doing click & collect for 'essential items'.

Newsagents are also often open - including Maqsood News on Green Lanes & the quite large Hamdy's newsagent on Stoke Newington High Street.

A lot of bakers & butchers are open; the very nice Spence bakery on Stoke Newington Church street is open today, though it was closed at the start of the crisis.

Restaurants & cafes are allowed to be open for takeaway only, though only some are, including Anteplilar and Abraco on Green Lanes. Il Bacio Express is open on Stoke Newington Church street, as are a number of others on that street.

Thanks. That’s a great start in responding to my post earlier today

Hardware shop in Crouch End opposite the Co-op is open.

...and they even had some masks the other day. 

I noticed Garages are open for fixing cars!

Some more places that are open:

- The large C&S Building Supplies shop at Stamford Hill

- The Leyland SDM decorators merchant on Balls Pond Lane by Dalston

- Daycocks bike shop on Stoke Newington Road

- Bikemech bike repairs by the Castle Climbing centre

B&Q is now opening many of its stores (though hours are shorter than normal eg closing at 5l), including the large one at Tottenham Hale and the small one on Holloway road.

You should check on their website for details first - www.diy.com

The car wash round the corner is open which I'm pretty sure is a bad idea :\

Why would you say that ?

People working very close to each other in quite physical conditions.

would be easy to pass on

Oh right. Thanks.

It's weird the way car washing in the UK has moved from being an automated process to a manual one - in contrast to most of the rest of the economy

Homebase at the Arena shopping centre is now open
