Chiswick In Pictures
We take a look at the changing face of trading on the High Road
With the suprising closure of Emma Bridgewater's Devonshire Road shop this week, we took a look at the changing face of trading in Chiswick. Although there are a number of closures and empty properties it's not all bad news.
Q Developments have begun transforming the former Est Est Est into homes and High Road Auctions has opened directly opposite.
Other openings include: Immagio Interiors, Quantus Restaurant, The Beehive, Majestic Wines
Chiswick Lane Junction now home to Pizza Makers and Peppermint (pram shop). But a number of premises remain empty.
Borthwicks has moved to the High Road, Red Chat has had a name change, Leyland has taken over the old Boardwise premises and work has begun developing the old petrol station opposite.
Nicholas Wine Shop closed without warning and Tanners is moving on after years of trading in Chiswick.
The Gunnersbury end of the High Road will receive a great boost when Majestic Wines open their doors.
The old timber yard on Acton Lane has now been demolished and the 'tricky' location seems to be picking up for business too.
And last but by no means least, the sad sight of Mr Lad's former newsagent is soften somewhat by the new hairdressers which have moved in a couple of doors down.
