It was still quiet in Fort William’s High Street at the start of this week, despite non-essential retailers now being allowed to open their doors following a relaxation of more coronavirus lockdown restrictions.
However, the wet weather at the start of the week will have dissuaded some shoppers from braving the elements and things are expected to get busier as we approach the easing of restrictions on tourism businesses from tomorrow (Friday).
Among the local businesses once again welcoming customers was Nevis Bakery on the High Street. owner Archie Paterson told the Lochaber Times: ‘It is not a great day to open with the rain teaming down, but hopefully it will dry up shortly.
‘I’m not to sure how things will go, but we have to start somewhere. I think it will take a couple of weeks to get back to normal and we need a spell of good weather to get things moving again.’
