Car Free Drury Street
Posted by Hannah Gumbrielle
We're very lucky to have our home in the hustle and bustle of the city center, and we're so proud to be surrounded by so many local businesses to call our neighbours. It's been a learning curve for all of us adapting to COVID restrictions, so we've been delighted to see the pedestrianisation trials over the last few weeks of South William Street, Dame Court, South Anne Street, Duke Street, as well as our very own home on Drury Street. Deliveries for stores are going ahead at designated times as well as car parks remaining open, so it's still accessible for those who want to bundle up into the car for a little day trip out.
Now over halfway through the trial, we've loved coming in at the weekend to see people out and about rediscovering their city. More room for outdoor seating for our pals in Industry means more families out for their weekend coffee and cake. A traffic-free street makes space for socially distanced benches for more folks to enjoy some weekend wine and cheese over with the good people at Loose Cannon. We've definitely noticed a rise in footfall on the street and our shop, and so far we love the impact it's having for Irish businesses and local enterprise. If you're been enjoying the trial, swing by and let us know what you think, or drop us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
