Plans to reopen outdoor markets and non-essential shops from June 1st

Posted on

The government has announced that outdoor markets and car showrooms can reopen from 1 June, followed by other non-essential shops, such as shoe and clothes shops from 15 June, including the indoor markets. The market halls have been open for the sale of essential food and both Todmorden and Halifax will continue in that format until the 15 June, when we will be required by law to allow other traders to open their stalls. In line with government guidance, cafes and beauty salons in the markets will not reopen at present. Carboots will remain closed until further notice.

The reopening will start in the week commencing 1 June with the following open markets: Brighouse (Weds, Sat), Elland (Fri), Hebden Bridge (Thurs, Sat, Sun), Sowerby Bridge (Tue, Fri, Sat), Todmorden (Weds, Fri, Sat)
