StirlingTraders-Reopening

Business owners have shared their thoughts on the planned dates to re-open the Stirling economy.

Businesses across Stirling have been reacting to the news of Scotland’s emergence from the coronavirus lockdown.

On Tuesday, First Minister Nicola Sturgeon outlined reopening dates when for the region’s struggling retail and hospitality sectors.

From April 5, non-essential shops can reopen as well as hairdressers and barbers. April 26 sees mainland Scotland set to move to Level 3 and travel across Scotland allowed again.

Retail and tourist accommodation can also re-open, as well as museums and libraries, indoor gyms will be allowed to open for individual sessions and limits on attendance at weddings and funerals will be increased to 50.

Cafes, restaurants and pubs will be able to serve customers outdoors up until 10pm. Indoor premises will be able to serve food and non-alcoholic drinks up to 8pm.

And on May 17, when Level 3 areas move to Level 2 and indoor hospitality will be able to move to greater levels of normality, cinemas and bingo halls can reopen.

Owner Lisa Davidson from Tinkerbells Emporium gift store in the city’s Friars Street is one of those excited about welcoming customers back through the doors once again.
