Shops, hairdressers, gyms and pub gardens reopen in Harrogate district

It's a big day for shops, hairdressers, gyms, pubs and restaurants across the Harrogate district.

It's a big day for shops, hairdressers, gyms, pubs and restaurants across the Harrogate district. For the first time in over three months, non-essential shops, hair and beauty salons, and gyms can all re-open their doors. And pubs and restaurants can welcome back customers to outdoor seating areas from today too. Alex Smith owns beauty salon The Treatment Rooms in Harrogate...

Councillor Carl Les, the leader of North Yorkshire County Council, said:

“Non-essential businesses have had a particularly tough time. We can now cautiously look forward to summer and the revival of the retail and hospitality sectors, which contribute so much to North Yorkshire’s economy. Let’s keep the good local shopping habits formed during the pandemic and support our reopening businesses as much as we can, while remembering how important it is still  to ‘wash hands, make space and cover face’ when we are out and about.”
