Pop-Up Pharmacy in Charing Cross Road
Soho Housing is delighted to be able to offer a pop-up home for Watsons Pharmacy at 72 Charing Cross Road in central London. The shop is now open for business. This will offer a vital resource to Soho HA residents and members of the wider local community.
As a consequence of the Coronavirus pandemic requiring closure of all the retail properties on the ground floor of Sandringham, as is the case for all retail units across the country, the bookseller at No.72 Charing Cross Road, ‘Francis Edwards Booksellers’ has unfortunately now ceased trading permanently and will not be renewing their lease. With the vacant unit, worked with the NHS to see what we could do in order to support their efforts in dealing with the pandemic. As a result we have provided the space at 72 Charing Cross Road for use by ‘Watsons Pharmacy’, for the time they require to continue operating in the area to serve the urgent needs of the local community. They have been forced to relocate temporarily from their usual home in Soho Square - so we are delighted to be able to offer them a new pop-up home.
