EARLIER THIS WEEK, The Prime Minister announced a roadmap out of lockdown.

This announcement included key dates to be aware of over the next few months that will contribute to life returning back to normality.

According to Johnson, non-essential shops will be able to open from April 12.

However, facemasks could still be required for shops up until June 17 which is the earliest bench mark for the country to return to normal living.

Sadly, until this date the country is still in lockdown and non-essential shops must remain closed.

Here are the shops that are still open in and around Penrith New Squares and Castle Retail Park.
