To everyone who has a Shop /Business which is considered non-essential by the UK government - or knows someone who does.
Business all over Austria, Germany & Switzerland are currently connecting to create a large network to make a stand: come hell or high water they will open for trading again on the 11.01.2021.
It's not only business owners, but they have also lawyered up for support to have as much vigour as possible.
The bigger, the more international this gets the better for small and medium size business, I would assume? If you would like to connect with them, here you have various options
Website Forum for discussions, suggestions etc.
(You will have to sign up on the website to post yourself)

I appreciate that the challenge might be that the website and the information is in German only, but for those not firm in the language I would offer myself as initial point of contact / translator where necessary so that a connection can be established. And who knows where that has potential to lead to.
The group has released the below flyer (in German obviously and I translated it 😜). Maybe people here in this forum could print out a few copies and get it to their local shops to make them aware.
