Lane Cove New Year’s Day 2018 Trading Hours

For those who are staying In the Cove over Christmas, we’ve trawled the local businesses to find out who is going to be open on Christmas Day and/or Boxing Day. So if you NEED a coffee on Christmas or New Year’s Day Morning (and who doesn’t!?), lunch with friends on New Year’s Day, or you’re all out of a vital ingredient for post-Christmas baking, we’ve got the intel here with our list of trading hours.

If you need Petrol on Christmas Day/New Year’s Day, Jack & Co is open.  You can get petrol and coffee and much more.  If you need Booze over the Christmas Break Porters Northwood is only closed Christmas Day and will be open from 12 pm on Boxing Day and New Years Day.

If you feel like you need a healthy restart to the New Year Go Vita Lane Cove is open every day over the Christmas Break except New Year’s Day.
