LONDON: Goodward builders' merchants is one of several businesses closing in Archway.

The family-run builders' merchant operated from Junction Road, Archway, for almost 50 years serving the local community.

Residents complain that the loss of long-serving business like Goodward is undermining the area. In their place a succession of gaming arcades have opened or have planning permission granted.
