A hardware and decorating shop in Ealing will re-open its doors on Monday.

Leyland SDM, based on The Mall in Broadway, has been closed since the UK entered lockdown due to coronavirus on March 23.

Measures have now been put in place to allow the branch to resume its service whilst sticking to all government guidelines on social distancing by limiting customer access in the store.

Jonathan Jennings, Chief Executive at Leyland SDM, said: “Throughout this challenging period, the government advice has been that hardware stores can remain open but ensuring the safety of our customers and colleagues has been our No 1 priority.

“With that in mind, we have kept branches open where we can successfully implement social distancing and Ealing now falls into that category, albeit we will have to limit the access customers have to the store.”

Branch manager Chris Darewicz added: “Even though we have been closed over recent weeks, there has been a lot of work going on behind the scenes to ensure we can re-open while meeting the government guidelines to safely do so.

“All members of the branch team are very excited about resuming operations and we look forward to welcoming the people of Ealing back into their local branch and providing a high level of service for their essential maintenance and DIY requirements during this time.”

The branch will be open from 8am-5pm from Monday to Saturday but closed on a Sunday.


There are 23 Leyland SDM branches across London, with 19 of them remaining open throughout the coronavirus crisis.
