” We have worked hard  and spent a lot on screens,  and gone above and beyond” said Ben Denton of Denton and Hyde. ” We really care about our clients so its the right thing to do. We have renovated the upstairs area as a room for vulnerable people who have underlying health conditions. The response from our clients has been 100% positive! This visit has been good for morale and good for Hoole. Hoole is a hotspot for business in Chester and we’re proud of the efforts of everyone in the local community.  ”

“The shop’s being doing tremendously well” said fishmonger  Karen White.  “I think we were the busiest fish monger in the area during lockdown, our sales tripled. Its quietening down now.  We are tied in with the Hoole Food Market and do deliveries with them.  Nobody is allowed in the shop now, we are constantly sanitising and we have stopped cash sales. ”

With Love from Hoole 

Owner of With Love from Hoole, Kim Snookes- Hathaway commented:  “We opened on the 15th June. It was really sad being closed, I didn’t know if we were going to reopen. The Government have been fab, if it wasn’t for the Government we wouldn’t have survived! ”

Happy to be meeting the public again, after many events during lockdown were cancelled or changed to a virtual format.  “I would encourage everyone to get behind our local businesses and show them our support by shopping local as our retailers play a vital role in our city. ”
