Lane Cove Christmas Trading Hours 2020

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 no more than 10 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.

Please note the information collated here is on the basis that restaurants/cafes are still allowed to be open but must comply with 4 sq meter rule and QR codes.  We will update this information if NSW Health introduces any new public orders that impact the Lane Cove Council area.

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

If you need Petrol and Convenience Store items on Christmas Day/New Year’s Day, Jack & Co is open.  You can buy petrol, coffee, ice, snack food and all those ingredients you forgot to get for that secret Christmas dish.   

Centro Lane Cove West is open throughout the Christmas Season – it is worth checking them out as they have an extensive range and if you are looking for a present for a homesick US, Brazillian, Asian friend they have a big range of foods from overseas to try.  Find out more about Centro here.

If you need Booze over the Christmas Break Porters, Northwood is only closed Christmas Day and will be open from 10 am on Boxing Day.

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.

I need a Doctor or a Vet.

If you need a Doctor on public holidays, Wise Medical Clinic in Macquarie Park is a private billing emergency clinic, and they are open 10 am-10 pm 7 days a week.

For your Furry family members needing a vet, North Shore Veterinary Hospital in Artarmon is open 24/7 for emergencies. If its during business hours, our friends at Figtree Veterinary Clinic are open:

Many people clean up between the Christmas and New Year holidays. The local op shops and recycling centre are closed until the new year – do not dump

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.

Lane Cove Library 

The Library staff have requested, that if possible, please do not return books on public holidays (the books stack up as the staff are not there to process the returns as they come in). Library items are not due during the period Christmas to 2 January 2020.

 

The above trading hours could change so if you are really keen to check out a place, give the business a call.

Repairs

Computer broken? Or just need to give it a checkup over the break? Check out our local tecks who can come to you. Apart from the public holidays, they are opened for business as usual.

Shop Local Lane Cove

It has been a tough year for local businesses (many of them owned by Lane Cove locals).  If you are in a position to shop for Christmas presents this year (and we know that many people have had to tighten their budgets this year), then please shop local.  Our Christmas Gift Guides are below.
