Shops in Buxton – which shops are open in Buxton & their opening times

Shops in Buxton

All non-essential retail shops reopened on the 15th June in England providing they follow government guidelines and are COVID-19 secure, social distancing is in place and they can show customers will be kept safe.

Face coverings

From Friday 24th July, face coverings must be worn in shops, supermarkets, shopping centres, banks and takeaways. Face coverings are already mandatory on public transport in England from 15th June.

What safety measures can we expect to see in shops?

Retailers will need to take certain steps to protect customers and staff, including:

  • Limiting the number of customers allowed inside at one time
  • Frequently checking and cleaning objects and surfaces
  • Businesses should display a downloadable notice to inform customers and staff they have followed COVID-secure guidance
  • Placing protective coverings on large items such as sofas which may be touched by passing shoppers
  • Businesses should only reopen once they have completed a risk assessment, in consultation with trade union representatives or workers, and are confident they are managing the risks. They must have taken the necessary steps to become COVID-19 secure in line with current Health and Safety legislation

Guidance for people who work in or run shops, branches, stores or similar environments has now been published by the government. Read the full document here.
