Calls to 'stay local & shop local' as businesses re-open their doors


The Welsh government has announced that non-essential retailers in Wales can begin trading once again. Retailers in Wales shut their doors 14 weeks ago, in March.

Calls are being made for residents in Wales to "stay local and shop local".

One of those people urging locals to back their local high-street and their local businesses, is Llanrwst councillor Aaron Wynne.

Cllr Wynne said;

"Businesses in Conwy county and across the north of Wales will begin opening their doors to shoppers over the coming days and weeks.

"If you can, please support these businesses. I urge residents to stay local and to shop local. It's so important we continue to back our homegrown businesses who are deeply rooted in our communities.

"Local traders employ local people. We must show them as much support as possible during these difficult times."

Hairdressers and salon have not been permitted to open by the Welsh government, but First Minister Mark Drakeford has said he hopes to see them start trading again in July.
