Open For Business

Open All Hours

We want to celebrate those retail and hospitality businesses that have reopened, as well as help people find out what’s open in their area.

But we need your help to build a searchable directory. Please only include those in the retail and hospitality sectors – every conceivable kind of shop, obviously, including hairdressers and the like, although not the big supermarket chains or other essential businesses that never closed. Also cafes, restaurants and – eventually – pubs. Cinemas, theatres, musical venues and comedy clubs, too.

Use the form below to tell us which businesses are open near you. We’re interested in those outlets that are serving customers in person, as well as those only offering deliveries at the moment. Probably best not to include underground businesses, such as nail salons in people’s kitchens, because we don’t want the police to use this as a tool to track down Covid dissidents. We’ve tried to think of every conceivable category in the tick boxes, but use “Other” if you can’t find the one you’re looking for. We’ll add to them in due course.

Use the map below to search for open businesses near you. Just plug in your postcode and you’ll see everything that’s open nearby – and there’s a gizmo that pops up and gives you directions on the left. You can also specify the type of business to search for, by clicking just to the left of the “Search” button. Thanks in advance for your help with this.
