In recent times our local and independent Edinburgh businesses could use our support more than ever.
Although the majority of businesses have closed their premises to help reduce the spread of the Coronavirus, some remain open (with altered hours and social distancing measures in place) and many continue to operate online offering deliveries, gift vouchers/cards and advanced purchases (often with an extended expiry date or free 24 hour cancellation policy).
Below are a few ways to support your favourite shops, restaurants, attractions and more, and treat others (or yourself) in the process!
