Christmas Cheer for Yate Traders

Traders at Yate Shopping Centre have described the Government’s latest announcement on the lifting of lockdown restrictions as ‘great news’, giving them reassurance that they can now look forward to the Christmas trading period with confidence.

From Wednesday, 2nd December it is anticipated that shops at the Centre will start re-opening and the Centre will soon be back into full swing. Further announcements on Thursday will decide which tier level South Gloucestershire falls into and that will determine whether or not the Centre’s restaurants, bars and cafes can resume full service.

Centre Manager, Andrew Lowrey: “It’s been an exasperating year for all traders but there is hope that at long last life can start to get back to normal. However, it is imperative that shoppers remain vigilant and keep to the Government’s guidelines.”

The New Year will bring new business challenges to House of Luxxe as it opens a new beauty salon at 20 West Walk to further develop its training facilities.

I appreciate how hard Leeanne and Ross have worked over the last twelve months and now they are progressing their very adventurous plans to put back into the profession some of what they have gained from it. We wish them good luck for 2021 and onwards with their very exciting plans”.
