The Gazette hunts high and low each week to bring you news of the most interesting and unusual new businesses in Hackney/Islington. This week, we found out Archway has a new boutique.
A kids’ charity has opened a boutique opposite Archway station in an effort to raise money.
The Children’s Air Ambulance, which relies entirely on public support, will be selling a range of fashion, homeware, accessories and bric-a-brac to raise money.
Bosses are also calling on the public to either donate items to boost stock or get behind the till themselves.
Area retail manager Dave Buttress said: “We’ve had a warm welcome from the local community already and we’re excited to be opening up in this busy and vibrant area.”
