Not all shops in Hexham have opened their doors - despite a much-welcomed relaunch of the town centre last week. 

Traditional toy shop Mr Wolf will reopen on Tuesday, after taking extra time to ensure safety measures were place. 

The shop's Lindsay Birney said: "We’ve decided to open on the 23rd just to give people time to get used to socially distancing in shops.

"We are very excited to be reopening but are under no illusion that things are going to have to be very different.

"We're confident that the changes we've made in store are going to help keep our staff and customers safe but still allow us to offer the same level of old fashioned customer service as before."

Ten Green Bottles Vintage, on Market Street, is not set to open until the first week in July. 

Proprietor David Ord said he’d used the lockdown period for refurbishment and to upcycle more vintage products.

“We’ve got measures in place for when we reopen,” said David. “From hand sanitiser to perspex at the till, we are ready to go. I am delighted that the shops in the town are opening again, but I just want to wait a little bit longer and open in the first week of July. It’s all about preference, and that works best for us.”

David has gradually expanded his Ten Green Bottles Vintage enterprise since launching back in 2014. He restores vintage items from clothing to record players.
