A big welcome back to our much-loved high street stores

 

The high street is the beating heart of any urban community. As our local high street stores reopen after lockdown, it's a real affirmation that the UK is returning to normality after 14 months of challenges and hardship.

At Daniel Cobb, we have really missed the bustle and energy of the thriving shops, restaurants and bars close to our offices in Westminster, London Bridge and Kennington. This is our way of supporting and welcoming back those much-loved businesses.

The dedicated shop workers mentioned below are not just our friends and neighbours; they are the lifeblood of the local community, providing exciting shopping opportunities and valued services as well as hosting welcoming spaces where people can meet. Now, as our high street shops are reopening, it's more important than ever to support them.

If your high street shops are open today, grab the opportunity to treat yourself. Nowadays, we all deserve a little pampering, and high street shopping is ideal for indulging in retail therapy. Enjoy!
