“Alarm Shop II”, Islington: where’s Shop 1?

“Alarm Shop II” burglar alarm, Islington • Now a very brief run of alarms named after shops. Not famous shops, like M&S or Tesco – just generic shops, as in Shop. This disco-tastic logo actually says Shop II, which is quite odd – I’m presuming it’s pronounced Shop Two, as in Elizabeth Two, rather than Shop Eleven, as in a football team. But I’ve never found a Shop I. • Spotted: Packington Street, Islington, London, N1, England, 2011 • Politics: In the Labour constituency of Islington South and Finsbury

  1. Dear concerned, there was an alarm shop in balls pond road that mainly concentrated on vehicle security. The two partners seperated and alarm shop 2 focused on intruder security systems. We now have qualified electricians working for us so recently changed our name to AS Electrical and Security. Many thanks for your query.
