Shoppers welcomed back to Tameside town centres

Press Release: 08/04/2021

 
Welcome Back

PEOPLE are being encouraged to shop safely and shop local as Tameside town centres reopen under eased government restrictions.
 
From 12 April 2021, non essential retailers and close contact businesses such as hairdressers and beauty salons can reopen to clients while pubs, cafes and restaurants can serve customers in outside seating.
 
Tameside Council compliance officers have been working closely with businesses to support them in preparing to reopen safely and within the rules.
 
Meanwhile, the council has launched a new ‘Welcome Back’ campaign, which is encouraging shoppers to support Tameside’s town centres and local businesses as they come out of lockdown. It is also providing information to support them to shop and travel safely.
 
A Tameside Council spokesperson said: “Tameside has a wonderful array of local businesses and shops, they have been through the most challenging of times but have been responsible, resilient and creative in how they have responded.
 
“We want to do everything we can to support businesses get back on their feet and thrive while also keeping their staff and customers safe. Equally, we want to ensure shoppers feel comfortable and confident venturing back out onto our local high streets so they can make the most of the vast array of opportunities they offer.
 
“We don’t yet know how many Tameside businesses are going to have survived the challenges of lockdown and the pandemic but right now they need our support more than ever. It is in everyone’s interests to support them to help keep the local economy going so please do get back out onto Tameside’s high streets while shopping safely and shopping local.
 
“Please remember the basic but very effective safety advice of washing hands, wearing face coverings, keeping your distance and letting in fresh air wherever possible. Importantly get tested and self isolate if you have covid symptoms.”
