Daniels Estate Agents help neighbour in time of crisis

31 May 2013



Westlakes the commercial stationers of 440 High Road, Wembley was badly damaged in a devastating fire in November 2012. The shop was deemed uninhabitable and major repair works were essential throughout. Daniels Estate Agents suffered smoke damage, however this was quickly resolved.  Daniels had some extra desks which they offered to Westlakes so they could continue to supply their corporate clients with their orders.

The damage was so extensive that the work took six months to complete. Daniels went beyond expectations during their neighbour’s hour of need. They even offered Westlakes their marketing skills to assist in the planning and re-branding of the shop. 

Daniels were pleased to announce the official reopening of Westlakes the Stationers in Wembley, the ribbon was cut by local Councillor Paul Lorber (Brent Lib Dem leader), on Monday the 20 May 2013.

Paresh Patel has been at Westlakes for over 30 years. He said: “The store is one of Wembley High Road’s oldest, approaching its 31st anniversary in September. 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, especially Daniels next door who gave us a home after we were left on the street. We would like to let everyone know we are back in business”.

Francis Henry, Director of Daniels, who has been at the Daniels Wembley branch himself for 20 years said: “Daniels Estate Agents are always happy to help those in need. We take our social responsibility seriously, actively supporting many local charities including  Save the Libraries Campaign. We are proud of our leading agent status in Brent”.
