Businesses in and around Sunderland praised by Echo readers since April 12 reopenings
Customers were welcomed back to shops, beer gardens and beauty salons as coronavirus restrictions were further eased in England on April 12.
For the first time in months, non-essential retail outlets, personal care premises and outdoor hospitality venues were permitted to reopen as part of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown.
Staff at businesses across Sunderland and beyond have been working tirelessly to keep themselves and their punters safe as we take this next step out Lockdown 3 restrictions, imposed by Prime Minister Boris Johnson in January.
So we asked the Echo readers to shout out a business they have visited since the latest round of reopenings, where they felt safe.
