QUEUES spanned High Street and snaked New Row as some downtown Dunfermline stores reopened this morning.
There was a large queue outside Primark shortly before 9 a.m. that extended to the top of High Street and then down New Row.
Shops with street access and some workplaces such as factories reopen following the loosening of Scotland’s foreclosure.
Relaxing today’s rules is part of phase two of the Scottish government’s “road map” out of the lockdown.
Despite the change, the government has urged people to continue following the guidelines on social distancing, and Scotland’s national clinical director, Professor Jason Leitch, has said that buyers should wear a face cover inside stores.
Shops of all sizes can reopen – but only if they have exterior entrances and exits.
Debenhams confirmed last week will also open its doors to Dunfermline buyers today (Monday).
