Buy in the Bay

Lockdown 3 January 2021

With a national lockdown announced earlier this week, the single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.

Residents are permitted to only leave home to shop for basic necessities, exercise and go to work if unable to do so from home.

Essential shops in the bay remain open and we have compiled a list to help you navigate which local businesses are permitted to open to serve the community.

Many non-essential businesses are offering click and collect and local deliveries and takeaway options to support the government guidance to stay home and stay local.

We have compiled a comprehensive list of our lovely local non-essential businesses who have once again adapted to offer shopping options to keep customers safe. Our business community have all pulled together to really ensure that customers can continue to shop safely and locally online from their homes.

Hospitality including pubs, bars and restaurants remain closed, but are permitted to accept sales by takeaway until 11pm, click and collect or delivery. (see list) Alcohol cannot be purchased through takeaway or click and collect from any hospitality premises.

Our hairdressers and beauty businesses also remain closed, but in the meantime customers can still ‘pay it forward’ and buy gift vouchers to use once we come out of the current lockdown and gradually move through the Tiers – perfect experience gifts for family and friends. Please show your support where you can.

Businesses in the Bay have continued to support the local community throughout the pandemic and now they really need your support to help them during these unprecedented times - so please consider shopping locally online for all your essential provisions and non- essential treats online. Thank you for supporting the Bay businesses, look after yourselves and your families, stay at home, stay safe and SHOP LOCALLY online.

Happy New Year The Buy in the Bay team X
