WITH THE green light given for all retailers to reopen, shoppers here have been taking the new normal in their stride with many shops reporting long queues and strong sales in the first few days post-lockdown.
While many shops remain closed while they put the finishing touches to new social distancing measures, a range of different outlets, including clothes shops, cafes and coffee shops have reported brisk early trade.
