Are you a Salisbury city centre shop preparing to re-open on 15th June? If so, here's what you need to do...

The Prime Minister has confirmed non-essential retail will be able to re-open on 15th June, providing they meet COVID-19 secure guidelines.

Salisbury BID is asking businesses within the BID boundary (inside the ring road of the city centre) to submit details of their re-opening in order to help the BID support them.

If you are planning to re-open, or are already open for business, please do the following...

In the BID's on-going efforts to support businesses and the wider economic recovery of the city, Salisbury BID is...

  • actively promoting BID levy payers who are open for business on our Shop Salisbury directory
  • providing social distancing tools to support businesses
  • helping businesses to co-ordinate potential queues outside shops
  • delivering initiatives to provide consumer confidence
  • leading on the coordination of the city's economic recovery plans

Robin McGowan, Salisbury BID Chief Executive, said: "Nearly 60% of Salisbury BID's levy payers are shops, so we welcome the Prime Minister's announcement that non-essential retailers can re-open from 15th June.

"As our city centre shops prepare to re-open, the BID is continuing to work hard to support businesses through this challenging time. Our objective is to help businesses implement safe social distancing measures, so people feel safe and reassured when shopping in Salisbury.

"We've got lots of initiatives lined up to get Salisbury's businesses and our economy back up and running, and we'd like to remind businesses to get in touch with us directly if they require any further support."
