Last Updated: Monday 1st June, 3pm

Government rules are: can remain open (but will not necessarily do so): Restaurants for food delivery and takeaway only; cafes for food delivery and takeaway only; services providing food and drink to the homeless. Retail as follows: supermarkets and other food shops; health shops; pharmacies including non-dispensing pharmacies; petrol stations; bicycle shops; home and hardware shops; launderettes and dry cleaners; garages; car rentals; pet shops; corner shops; newsagents; post offices; banks; market stalls which offer essential services such as grocery and food; off-licences and licenced shops selling alcohol, including those within breweries; garden centres (but not sit-down eating facilities such as tea rooms within garden centres). PLEASE VISIT THESE PREMISES FOR ESSENTIAL REASONS ONLY AND MAINTAIN SOCIAL DISTANCING AT ALL TIMES. USE HOME DELIVERY SERVICES WHENEVER POSSIBLE.

The list is accurate as far as I am aware at the time of updating. However, I do not guarantee that it is completely correct. Not all businesses publish regular updates, plus the situation is fast-moving, and in particular, restaurants and cafes offering takeaway and delivery services may decide to close with no warning.


1. Shop/stall open, no deliveries

Euro Supermarket (Foleshill Road): Open 8am-11pm.

Londis Cheylesmore: “To all NHS staff, if you message me with a list of groceries I will try my best to make it up and keep it in the back so when you finish your shift it will guarantee you will have all the essentials.”

We can’t make up bespoke lists. The price is the maximum, and we hope we can bring it down a bit as we find different sources. We’d rather you collect the box, but we can deliver. There is a £3 delivery charge anywhere within the city. We’ll drop it on your doorstep, knock and retreat.
