Lane Cove Easter Trading – What is Open?

Easter Lane Cove

Relax Coffee Addicts we have you covered!!  As you know ITC has a PhD in coffee drinking. We always need to know where we can get our next coffee. So we hit the streets of Lane Cove to find out what will be open over the Easter long weekend.  As a general rule most places are closed Good Friday and Easter Sunday.  However we have set out below some more details.

We also specifically checked which Fish Shops were open on Good Friday (that was for ITC’s mum – we were never allowed to eat meat on Good Friday).

If you need a doctor over the Easter period, check out our blog HERE.

Double Demerit Points

Double Demerit Points start tomorrow and basically extend until the end of the school holidays. Double demerits will be in place for eight days during this month’s Easter and ANZAC Day holiday period.

Double demerits start on Thursday 18 April and run to Monday 22 April 2019. Then there will be a one day break before they start again on Wednesday 24 April and run through to Sunday 28 April (inclusive).

The double demerit points period applies from midnight of the start date to midnight on the finish date, meaning this month there will be a total of eight days where double demerit penalties will be in place.

Double demerit points apply for speeding, seatbelt, motorcycle helmet and mobile phone offences.Drivers caught using their phones during a double demerit period can expect to be hit with the fine as well as up to 10 demerits.

Please drive safely and take extra care on the roads.

Petrol, Convenience Stores, Booze and Yikes I have Locked Myself Out

If you need Petrol and Convenience Store items, Jack & Co is open.  You can buy petrol, coffee, ice, snack food and all those ingredients you forgot to get for that secret Easte dish. 7 Eleven on Centennial Avenue is open throughout Easter from 6 am to midnight (and they have Slurpees and Krispy Kremes (which you can preorder) – we will say no more).

If you need Booze over the Easter Break Porters Northwood is only closed Good Friday.  If you’re having an Easter party speak to them about their party services, free delivery and glass hire.

If you lock yourself out of your house or you need a replacement lock urgently – Alert Locksmiths and Security operate their emergency service 24 Hours a Day/7 Days a Week.

We have done the best we can at compiling this information, hours could be subject to change so we suggest you double check the details. This guide is just to give you an indication.  We were actually surprised at how many cafes are open for Good Friday. A couple of years ago, we struggled to find any shops open on Good Friday.

Cleaning UP and DIY

Many people clean up and undertake DIY, the Community Recycling Centre located at 8 Waltham Street in Artarmon is a one-stop shop for safely disposing of problem household wastes such as paint, gas bottles, e-waste or motor oil and more.  In other words, problem wastes that can’t be collected via council kerbside waste or recycling collection services all year round.  They are closed Good Friday, Easter Sunday and Easter Monday and ANZAC Day.  They are open on Easter Saturday (swing by as you go to Bunnings)

Please be careful when you under DIY – Easter is a big DIY time and also the local hospitals have a spike with the increase in DIY related injuries.
