Last minute late night shopping events have been organised by Bridgnorth
retailers in response to the second lockdown announcement.
More than 20 retailers will be open until 7pm tonight (Monday Nov 2),
Tuesday and Wednesday and are urging local people to support them.
Sally Themans of Love Bridgnorth, an initiative which campaigns to promote the town, said she was impressed with the reaction to the government announcement.
“Instead of complaining, our brilliant Bridgnorth business people have quickly rallied round to organise these late opening evenings,” she said.
“A wide range of shops, selling everything from gifts, clothing, toiletries, toys, flowers, craft supplies and shoes, as well as several of our hair salons, will be welcoming people through the doors.
“It is a chance for residents to get their Christmas shopping done early and
use their hometown retailers as it is more vital than ever for us all to get
behind independent and local businesses.
“Bridgnorth won the Great British High Street Large Market Town category in 2016 due largely to community spirit and inventiveness – this reaction show that is still very much in evidence – let’s hope people support this initiative,”she said.
Shops which are staying open are :
The Bridgnorth Refill Room
Wool & More
The Menz Room
The Cake Room
The Creative Outlet
Bridgnorth Flowers and Gifts
M & Co
The Perfume Laboratory
