For those staying In the Cove over Christmas, we’ve trawled the local businesses to find out who will 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!?) 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.
‘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 essential ingredients you forgot to get for that secret Christmas dish.
Centro Lane Cove West is open throughout the Christmas Season and New Year – it is worth checking them out as they have an extensive range of fresh food, meat and grocery items, 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 closed Christmas Day and New Year’s Day and will be open from 10 am on Boxing Day.
Dan Murphy’s Cellar is closed on Christmas Day only.
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 only.
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
If possible, the Library staff have requested that 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 2021.
The above trading hours could change, so if you are really keen to check out a place, give the business a call.
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. See local computer techs here.
