I recently wrote a post about local restaurants and food shops still open during lockdown and thought I would expand to share local businesses in Matlock (or nearby) that are still delivering. From bookshops to crafts to hardware and more.
There are still lots of local businesses open in some form during lockdown. Some have online businesses have websites they are growing, others are offering their services online until ‘normal’ life resumes. Whatever normal life might be!
