Two unsuccessful betting shops in Palmers Green are shortly to reopen as rather more benign enterprises - one as a bakery, the other as an opticians.

le grand jourThe bakery will have a French name - Le Grand Jour (meaning "broad daylight") - and is described as a Boulangerie-Patisserie, suggesting gethat we can look forward to French-style home baked bread, pastries and cakes.  Le Grand Jour will be on the corner of Green Lanes and Devonshire Road.

The other former betting shop is located at the Triangle.  Tipico, downstairs from the banqueting suite, will become a Boots opticians and hearing aids shop.

Unfortunately, that still leaves Palmers Green with rather too many betting shops - the big players, such as Ladbrokes and Paddy Power, show no sign of closing.

And at long last work has begun on converting the former 1001 Turkish supermarket and adjacent Palmers Green News shop into a Sainsbury's Local store - see our earlier report.

The final piece of shopping news is rather sad:  the owner of Westlakes is retiring and the shop will be taken over by Amy's Hardware.
