The market stalls have been permitted to re-open by the Government in their ‘road map out of lockdown’, on the same day as non-essential clothing stores, hairdressers and barbers, libraries, outdoor hospitality venues, and alfresco bars.

Hinckley and Bosworth Borough Council have taken to their official social media sharing pages to confirm the return of the traders at Hinckley Market.

During the time off that Hinckley’s non-essentials have had taken through the lockdown, not being out on the high street, traders like beauty-based stall, Facebase Cosmetics, have been offering a delivery service to their customers.

Residents have been reminded to be respectful of other shoppers and market stall holders whilst shopping at the stalls by adhering to the social distancing guidelines that have been put in place.
