Take care and stay safe
Supporting our local high streets and community safely in 2021
Following the announcements of 22 February, we are looking ahead to the return of open-door retail shopping and other services based on our local high streets from 12 April 2021.
A great deal can happen in the coming weeks, but our retail traders are certainly looking forward to welcoming you back inside again safely and to outdoor spaces, in the case of hospitality businesses.
While we are still in National Lockdown, that limits how our local services can operate and how we socialise...
You can support our fantastic traders in the Crystal Palace area with:
- Your continued custom and shopping locally for essentials
- Shopping via click / collect
- Takeaways and local home-deliveries
- Purchasing vouchers to pay-it-forward for April and beyond
- Recommendations and likes on social media
Our high street shops and local services are so appreciative of your continuing support, wherever safely possible, until the restrictions are lifted.
The other thing that you can do, for FREE, which will truly help our High Streets in 2021, is to sign-up as a supporter by joining our Shop SE19 mailing list. We're hoping to share some exclusive offers to newsletter subscribers. Hit the "sign up now" button below.
