This year has been incredibly tough for local businesses who have faced lockdown, tiered restrictions and having to adapt to new government guidelines.

December is usually jam-packed for Knowsley businesses with fully-booked venues, busy online orders and festive-themed gifts for all the family.

But that doesn’t have to necessarily change too much and despite everything that 2020 has thrown at them, businesses in the borough are continuing to do what they love – and you can still support them this Christmas.

On Thursday, Tier 2 status was confirmed for the entire Liverpool City Region and whilst many can reopen from 12.01am on December 2, themselves and others have online websites, launched click and collect services, are offering takeaway food and drink deals or have vouchers to be redeemed at a later date.

The list below isn’t intended to be comprehensive – we put together a survey for businesses to fill out, put a call out on social media and there are so many other incredible businesses you can support in Knowsley.
