Knutsford is ready to welcome back Christmas shoppers this week, once the restrictions of the nationwide lockdown are eased.
Sandra Curties, marketing officer for Knutsford Town Council, commented: “Knutsford is a perfect place to do some Christmas shopping.
“Whether you are looking for young or old, our independent and sometimes quirky shops have the perfect gifts.
“Our small business owners offer a personal service often including gift wrap and will take their time to help you source the perfect present.
“Of course, this personal service will be under safe Covid-19 guidelines too.”
Local retailer Jo Ashton said: “Whilst we kept ourselves busy during this second Lockdown with pre-orders and collections, it doesn’t compare to being open properly especially at Christmas.
“We love the atmosphere in the shop, helping customers choose the perfect festive wreath or floral display or choosing a little gift.
“We, like all the Knutsford shops, can’t wait to welcome everyone back”.
There are three free parking days in Knutsford in December too – Saturday 5th, 12th and 19th December – with, Silk Mill, King and Princess Street car parks will be free after 10am.
The weekend of 12th and13th December will see Knutsford host its annual Christmas markets, with a smaller offering but still a unique range of market traders showcasing the best Cheshire food, drink and gifts.
Knutsford’s festive Christmas lights will also brighten up the town alongside the shops magical Christmas windows.
