OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN OBAN

OPEN FOR BUSINESS IN OBAN

 

We are publishing this information in association with BID4OBAN and ObanFM, supported by the Scotland’s Towns Partnership. Helping to provide resilience for our local business community. Many of these businesses are working under extreme pressure to bring quality products and services to the people of Oban and beyond.

Please remember to exercise caution when shopping and only shop for essential supplies. Along with our wonderful NHS staff and carers, our local food, fuel, news platforms and home supply businesses are our community champions!

 

We realise that many more businesses would love to be open, serving locals and visitors alike – our deepest empathy goes out to these businesses and we look forward to seeing their doors wide open when this is all over.

Please feel free to get in touch with us if you would like to feature your business, or know a business that should be included. Email adverts@obantimes.co.uk. Let’s spread the word as much as we can!

 

PLEASE NOTE: You should wear a face covering in an enclosed space or where you will come into contact with people outside your household or support bubble and most businesses require you to call prior to attending their store/shop.
