Coronavirus – Most Shops Still Open & Some Banks Closures

Most of Henley’s independent shops are still open for business during this uncertain time and many say they will remain open until the Government insists that they close.

There’s plenty of spaces in the car parks today so if you need something, please support our local businesses #supportlocal.

The only shops that have closed are British Heart Foundation and Helen & Douglas shops in Duke Street due to volunteer shortages and Busby & Fox on Bell Street, The Ferret on Friday Street and Asquiths on New Street.  Oxfam Book Shop in Duke Street will close on Saturday (21 March) for 4 weeks.

The banks are struggling with staff shortages due to illnesses.  Lloyds Bank is currently closed.  NatWest are only open today (Friday) 10-3pm and are closed tomorrow (Saturday).  HSBC are currently only open on Thursday and Fridays for next 2 weeks.  They hope to reopen on 1 April.  Nationwide and Barclays are open.

So whether you need a book to pass the time, your shoes re-heeling, something for your dog or cat, a last minute gift or flowers for Mother’s Day, pop and see our lovely locals….
