As West Dunbartonshire moves from Tier 4 to Tier 3 on Friday all non-essential shops are allowed to re-open again from 6am on Fri. We officially come out of Tier 4 at 6pm, so pubs and restaurants cannot open until 9am on Sat 12 Dec.

With just two weeks left until Christmas we are encouraging all Dunbartonshire residents to choose their local shops and services for Christmas gifts this year. This Christmas trade could be a lifeline for many of these small businesses, that have been hit hard by the Covid-19 pandemic and the recent lockdown.

In addition, we are hosting virtual Christmas markets, offering local businesses a platform to publicise their offerings, discounts, special deals etc online.

Support your local businesses by shopping locally, eating locally, and using your local businesses to ensure everyone has a good Christmas.
