Here is a completely Second Hand blog based on over 100 responses to a Facebook question. It’s very relevant to the Neighbourhood Forum because the Town Centre, its shops and streetscape (signs, railings, road crossings and so on) forms a part of the planning brief the Forum will look at.
Woolworth’s seems to be sorely missed, and apparently the range of cafes is still not enough.
Hi fellow Crouch Ender!… What type of shop do you think Crouch End needs?
- Wayne Herbert It has to be something which isn’t niche or specialist unless there is sufficient volume in the immediate area to keep customers coming back. Realistically it should also be something that people can’t buy online cheaper.
Services work better. And that’s why hairdressers and coffee shops do so well in Crouch End.
Sorry with the non-specific answer.
