READERS had their say on when they think non-essential shops should reopen. Here’s a

selection of comments...

I THINK a slow opening is needed. Not just flinging the whole of Buchanan Street’s shops’ doors wide open.

For instance, at Crow Road, Sainsbury’s, M&S food, Superdrug, Home Bargains and Boots are all open and social distancing is working fine.

Costa and McDonald’s will open soon, so why can’t Argos and Mountain Warehouse open up too?

I doubt the footfall would cause a sudden spike and obviously social distancing would work just the same.

There are many of these malls around. We can start with them and see how that goes.

I WORK in non-essential retail (jewellery/watches) and we have been told our company is looking towards reopening in the second week of June!

We are based in the Argyll Arcade and each shop is a different size, most are very small and oddly shaped. Socially distancing is going to be extremely difficult!

READERS had their say on what they would like to do once lockdown is over.

I’LL be happy to still stay in the house and not be hit by the second wave of the virus.

I’ll go back to daily life only when it is safe to do so. Quite happy just going to work (as a carer) and back home for now.

TALK to other adults, go to a park and play with the kids all day – let them have fun, play on the swings and build sand castles.

HUG and kiss my family, then go and see my wee mammy and give her the biggest hug. I miss her so much.

THE first thing I will do after lockdown is lifted is to stay home.
