The Orange Tree, which has long been a stalwart of life on Wanstead High Street, is to close its shop. Like many things it is going online, and is hoping to offer a local click-and-collect service for its wallpaper, paint and fabrics.

Owner Rachel Root told Wansteadium: “Everyone has been very supportive so far and for many the fact that I’ll be offering a free home consultation service with the collections is a big plus.”

She has found new studio premises in Wanstead to operate from. The Orange Tree website has been prominent for a while and will be further developed.

The announcement comes in what was beginning to feel like a golden period for the High Street with the new greengrocer and butcher bringing more shoppers back into the area.

  1. Absolutely gutted. I never failed to find something to buy in there and always great for a last minute present. Hope this is nothing to do with greedy landlords again.
