Liverpool city centre was busy with shoppers and restaurant-goers once again today on the final day of Christmas shopping.
With the most festive day of the year now just hours away, there was a rush of people attempting to pick up their last bits and pieces.
Now that shops and restaurants are back open after England’s November lockdown, the city centre is bustling again, with shoppers forming large queues outside the likes of Primark, Game and TK Maxx.
The queue outside Primark stretched around the corner of Church Alley, while the queue for Game cut across Lord Street.
Many shoppers headed to Church Street, while others chose to shop and grab a bite to eat on Bold Street.
Liverpool City Region was confirmed to be staying in Tier 2 restrictions this week, meaning shops, restaurants, salons and more are able to stay open – at least for now.
You can still visit a pub or bar if it is operating as a restaurant too, providing that you order a ‘substantial’ meal alongside any alcoholic drinks.
The new rules also mean hospitality venues must close at 11pm, with last orders at 10pm, so there’s no wonder the city centre was so busy early in the day.
