#LoveLocal directory to shopping in Lichfield and Burntwood

festive snowflakes with wording: Love Local This Chrismas shopping directory

Residents can now ‘love local’ during lockdown with the help of online listings to district businesses that are trading during lockdown.

Local people, who would usually be looking forward to stocking up on gifts and winter warmers at shops across the district, are being urged to support Lichfield and Burntwood businesses with the help of a handy directory to lockdown shopping.

As part of its #LoveLocal this Christmas campaign, Lichfield District Council has produced a guide to local shops that are open as usual, or offering online and click and collect options.

As well as independent gift, food and fashion shops, the guide lists a range of other businesses that are continuing to operate, which local people may find useful, including takeaways, florists, opticians and banks.

Councillor Liz Little, Cabinet Member responsible for Economic Development, said:

“With the second lockdown getting underway, we want to support our local businesses as much as we can.

“This is why we have put together a directory featuring businesses that are continuing to offer their services across Lichfield and Burntwood.

“It will help everyone to find out how to boost their local shops and companies during these difficult times, and will hopefully help businesses to bounce back when lockdown is lifted.”

If your business doesn’t appear in the directory and you are based in Lichfield district and operating during lockdown, please email the economic development team to be included.
