Due to the recent Tier 4 announcement, non-essential shops are now closed, but plenty of the list below are offering delivery or online lessons.
Local businesses need our support now more than ever. Whether they rely on drop-in shoppers or people coming in to take part in an event, it’s been a difficult year for many small shops in Cricklewood, Hendon or Golders Green. “If we live locally, we should connect locally. Given what’s come in since last March, an unprecedented pandemic, has in its wake shown us what it is to be a community on the high street and why it’s necessary,” says Brian Schwartz, co-owner of Black Gull Books, East Finchley’s secondhand bookshop – which is a quick cycle-ride away from Brent Cross Town.
We’ve put together some local recommendations, so whether you’re looking for gift ideas for the festive season or have a New Year’s resolution to fulfil, have a look below.
Importantly, who did we miss? At Brent Cross Town, we’re looking to work with businesses already based in the area to fill a bustling high street and town centre. If you’d like to help shape this town’s future, or know just the person who should, get in touch via our Shops & sport page.
