Corona: Retail opens again after more than 80 days | NDR.de – News – Schleswig-Holstein

Status: March 8th, 2021 7:10 p.m.

Monday was the day the retail trade in Schleswig-Holstein opened, and stores were closed for almost twelve weeks. Many people started their shopping tour in the morning.

In the inner cities of Lübeck and Elmshorn (Pinneberg district), queues up to 50 meters long formed in front of some shops on Monday morning. Not only were Schleswig-Holsteiners on the move, NDR Schleswig-Holstein reporters also spotted cars with license plates from Hamburg, Lower Saxony and Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania in the full parking lots. Lübeck’s mayor Jan Lindenau (SPD) had warned of this. He saw the danger that the number of infections in the Hanseatic city could rise again through shopping tourists.

Hygiene rules were apparently observed in Lübeck

In front of the shops on Breite Straße, the main shopping street in the Hanseatic city, almost all consumers adhered to the rules of distance and wore mouth and nose protection. The retailers made sure that the hygiene concepts were adhered to in their stores. Lübeck was full, but it wasn’t overrun. There was enough space in the squares and the weekly market to take a break in the sun.

Elmshorn: Customers return with mixed feelings

The same picture in Elmshorn: queues in front of the shops, but the pedestrian zone of the city in the metropolitan region of Hamburg was not overcrowded. Many customers told NDR Schleswig-Holstein that it was a strange feeling to be in a well-filled city center, because they were very careful about distance and hygiene rules. Nevertheless, they are happy that sales talks can take place in person again.

No queues in Halstenbek

In the residential mile Halstenbek (Pinneberg district) there were no queues on Monday morning, but happy customers in the fabric shop. A woman was looking for material for her grandchild. “With materials like this, I have to feel it and say: it works or not,” said the customer.

The shopping pleasure could also be over very quickly if the incidence value of the country is stable above 50 again. The result would be a return to Click & Collect. According to the latest figures (as of Sunday evening), the incidence is 45.5.
