New shop opening: Hardware & DIY store where Riley's used to be

The new fit-out has started already. 

With Bishops and Patels very close by and well-established, I wonder how this one will fare.

And will they make a good job of repairing their own rotted window surround.

Damn, I wanted to post this under the heading "Probably just a passing Fads" in honour of a previous diy store from years ago roughly where Gregg's is now. I couldn't remember its name but Linda Grant did.

Those in Muswell Hill are greatly exercised by the impending closure of Clarks Shoe Shop. Though a quick search of Zoopla suggests many fewer shops to let in Muswell Hill than in Crouch End . The Ham and High article by Sam Volpe is here

Glimpsed in the window today

Okay I'll bite.

An everyday object seen from an unusual angle? Fire extinguishers? An enormous adze? Rolls of emery paper? Replacement parts for Polaris? 

It says "Keep Out". Might be a popular line, though I had another excellent experience in Bishop's today buying picture hanging bits and bobs. I doubt if next-door-to-rileys could compete.
