Coronavirus - What Shops Are Open & When?
** Updated 14/4 With New buying limits, opening hours + New Info **
With the announcement of measures to prevent the spread of coronavirus we thought we would do a list of shops that are open if you need stuff and any opening times and restrictions that apply.
Please note obviously these are not just to go shopping because you are bored and need to get out these are just for essential purchases. Best advice is to stay safe at home and stop the spread.
I am updating the list all the time but for some idea of the shops that are allowed to open and what is classed as essential, please see this guide
