Very sad to note the closure of Wanstead Toy Box, a noble little venture which many in Wanstead were delighted to see and support. Whatever the reasons for the closure it certainly doesn’t help cure the impression that trading at the Snaresbrook end of the high street is very tough.
Meanwhile, another beautician is set to open in the spot vacated by Angels Hair and Nails when it moved up next door to Judith’s (and close to the Wanstead Beauty Clinic). It raises the question of how many beauticians can one high street support? Whatever the answer, it’s clear that, ladies of Wanstead, your nails are looking lovely and it’s great you support the local traders.
