Squeezed with a social conscience: New juice bar coming to West Ealing


Well, not quite new because Juice Cube had a very succssful trial run in the Ealing Pop Up Shop earlier this year – so welcome back.

Juice Cube is a socially conscious business that makes fresh smoothies and juices from surplus foods – right in front of you, while you wait. It was founded two students, Anuj Dhanak and Qitai Ooi, in summer 2013 and they were given their first opportunity to test trade in a real world retail environment this February in the EalingPopUpShop, an initiative funded by West Ealing Project Steering Group. Following their success and experience in the pop up shop, they saw West Ealing as the ideal location to set up their first juice bar and secured the long-term of lease of 191 Uxbridge Rd, West Ealing – a retail unit opposite Tesco/Daniel’s bed shop that has been vacant for a number of years.

Juice Cube launches on Saturday 11th October and will be open 7 days a week.

First Avenue Vintage and Antique Market a great success


Dramatic black gazebos lined the pavement in The Avenue for the launch of this new monthly antique and vintage market. The newly-established West Ealing Business Improvement District is behind this initiative and is part of its efforts to attract more shoppers to West Ealing. The market looked pretty busy mid-afternoon when I was there.

Market Manager Barry Tuffnell said: “The Avenue” in West Ealing saw the first Vintage and Antique Market launch in style on Saturday 27 September. The feedback from both dealers and market go-ers was incredibly positive. The aim is to build on the numbers of stalls each month – so there is definitely a reason to return month on month and see what you can pick up. The next dates are Saturday 25 October and Saturday 29 November, with a special Christmas fair on Saturday 13 December.
