If your business is temporarily closed:
You could make contact with your nearest business neighbours to exchange phone numbers. This may give a little peace of mind if you are not now able to be in your business premises every day. They may be able to check your premises for you and provide some reassurance that all is okay.
- There is also the Ulverston Traders Facebook Group. This is a great place for sharing local information. If you haven’t already joined, please find the group here www.facebook.com/groups/UlverstonTraders
- If you are worried about stock being on display, you could choose to temporarily remove stock which is visible from the shop window.
- Do contact your insurers to check if you are covered for this kind of business interruption. Whilst most commercial policies don’t cover for this kind of situation, it is worth checking.
