As non-essential retail businesses reopen their doors today, Westminster City Council is promoting a ‘Shop Local’ campaign to boost the local economy.
Councillor Robathan paid a visit to retailers on Motcomb Street to see how they’re trading safely and to promote the campaign.
Some of the businesses in Motcomb Street, and across Westminster, have managed to stay open to supply essential items to residents such as food and groceries. Others have been able to adapt and conduct business online, delivering their goods to consumers. “Local shops are the lifeblood of our communities and we are keen to promote the fantastic products and services available within Westminster,” said Cllr Robathan. “We want our residents to Shop Local, Spend Local, and Support Local Westminster.”
