Residents in North Lincolnshire are being urged to shop safely and support local businesses when more shops re-open next week.

As part of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown non-essential retail and personal care services are able re-open from 12 April 2021.

Ahead of the re-opening a series of videos have been produced showcasing how businesses across our area have adapted to the pandemic, implementing safety measures to keep shoppers and staff safe.

Watch the videos on our YouTube channel.

Supported by North Lincolnshire Council, local businesses have shown tremendous flexibility, working hard to diversify their offers and ensuring their premises are Covid secure.

Measures have included everything from the installation of one-way systems, sanitising stations and protective screens to launching click and collect and home delivery services.

Throughout the pandemic, residents and businesses have rallied to help those in need in a fantastic show of community spirit.

It is now hoped that shoppers will support local businesses who have been impacted, while ensuring that they stay safe to protect themselves, their families and the wider community.
