Services still being offered by local independents in the Chiswick area
Our local shops and small businesses, have been making huge efforts to adapt given the fast-changing situation with Covid-19 with some offering online or delivery services instead. As we know, under the stringent rules, residents have to stay at home and only shop when absolutely necessary for essential items such as food and medicines.
Some local businesses will still be offering online/delivery services and we will keep updating that list as they inform us of their situation. Others which are classified as 'essential' will remain open practicising social distancing and other safe shopping regulations.
Shops which are allowed to remain open incude food retailers, pharmacies, hardware stores, corner shops, petrol stations, shops in hospital, post offices, banks, newsagents, laundrettes and pet shops. Those deemed non-essential and now shut include shops selling clothing, books and electricals, as well as hairdressers, bed and breakfasts, and markets, whether they are indoors or outdoors.
Councillor Joanna Biddolph and her colleagues on the Chiswick Shops Task Force have spoken to many of the local independent shops who said they badly need residents to support them through this crisis. Many shops have closed while some traders have made special arrangements to try to operate. The list is updated as we receive the information but please check with the shops first.

Like Reading Articles Like This? Help Us Produce More
This site remains committed to providing local community news and public interest journalism.
Articles such as the one above are integral to what we do. We aim to feature as much as possible on local societies, charities based in the area, fundraising efforts by residents, community-based initiatives and even helping people find missing pets.
We've always done that and won't be changing, in fact we'd like to do more.
However, the readership that these stories generates is often below that needed to cover the cost of producing them. Our financial resources are limited and the local media environment is intensely competitive so there is a constraint on what we can do.
We are therefore asking our readers to consider offering financial support to these efforts. Any money given will help support community and public interest news and the expansion of our coverage in this area.
A suggested monthly payment is £8 but we would be grateful for any amount for instance if you think this site offers the equivalent value of a subscription to a daily printed newspaper you may wish to consider £20 per month. If neither of these amounts is suitable for you then contact firstname.lastname@example.org and we can set up an alternative. All payments are made through a secure web site.
One-off donations are also appreciated. Choose The Amount You Wish To Contribute.
If you do support us in this way we'd be interested to hear what kind of articles you would like to see more of on the site – send your suggestions to the editor.
For businesses we offer the chance to be a corporate sponsor of community content on the site. For £30 plus VAT per month you will be the designated sponsor of at least one article a month with your logo appearing if supplied. If there is a specific community group or initiative you'd like to support we can make sure your sponsorship is featured on related content for a one off payment of £50 plus VAT. All payments are made through a secure web site.
