Several municipalities in the Netherlands have written and signed a brandbrief (pressing letter) to the cabinet, asking them to reopen non-essential shops.
Concerns across the country
Some municipalities are calling for different policies when it comes to opening non-essential shops. They recognise that appropriate safety measures will be needed to reopen — but many business owners seem ready to comply.
Other non-essential shops are taking matters into their own hands by protesting and opening their doors to customers, regardless of the consequences set by municipalities and the cabinet. 🪧
After Dutchies ventured to Belgium for Christmas shopping, non-essential shopkeepers in the Netherlands are desperate to get out of lockdown — and honestly, who else isn’t?
