Crewe town centre appeared to be bustling on Tuesday 13th April, after the government eased lockdown restrictions nationally just the previous day.
Despite a number of retail units being vacant, and an entire section of the town centre units being recently demolished to make way for a new development, shoppers still queued for their turn to browse the remaining 70+ outlets who were fully open.
Street buskers were in full swing outside the indoor market centre, entertaining locals passing by and those customers seated outdoors at several bakeries and coffee shops.
Pavement markings advised shoppers on appropriate distances for queueing, and once inside staff and customers happily socially distanced and complied with wearing face coverings universally.
