Westlakes has been in Wembley High Road for more than 30 years

A popular stationery shop in Wembley that was badly damaged by a fire has opened its doors to customers after being closed for months.

Westlakes in Wembley High Road suffered thousands of pounds worth of damage following the blaze in November last year and the back of the shop was destroyed.

Around 30 fire fighters took three hours to tackle the blaze which also caused smoke damage throughout the building. But now the store has re-opened following a refurbishment and is looking forward to welcoming customers again.

Paresh Patel, who has been at Westlakes since it opened more than 30 years ago, said: “We are delighted to be reopening the new look shop and would like to say a big thank you to everyone who has supported us, and been patient through this difficult time, and would like to let everyone know we have now reopened.”

The store sells a range of stationery equipment and also printing and laminating services.
