Connecting Crouch End and Hornsey with news, views and information
The ham and High thiis wekk carries an opinion piece on Crouch End shops from the Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum.. The forum has published an analysis of what shops we have to choose from locally, and is tracking changes. Check for yourself how many coffee chos and nail bars we already have.
The opinion piece in the H&H lists some of the factors which may affect our shopping centre - Kerb, rates, rents, Amazon groceries and Deliveroo, for instance. Will developments such as these lead to the closure of more businesses ? I was sorry to see Real Electricals go - a barely visible notice behind the shutter suggests financial troubles.
The Forum is trying to do something about Crouch End's changing High Street. Sign up for their newsletters, and offer your opinions on the Crouch End Neighbourhood Forum contact page. Maybe a High Street with nothing useful on it, only charity shops and estate agents, is the future and we just have to get used to the idea.
