Indoor shopping centres across Scotland have welcomed back their first customers since the coronavirus restrictions began on March 23.
Shops were allowed to reopen on Monday as part of phase three of the exit from lockdown.
Non-essential shops with outdoor entrances were allowed to reopen on June 29 but indoor areas are now included.
Some shopping centres reported long queues as customers returned after almost four months of lockdown.
The use of face coverings is mandatory in retail areas, including the shared concourses of shopping centres.
Scotland’s largest undercover shopping centre in East Kilbride, South Lanarkshire, introduced a one-way system for customers walking around the site.
A spokesman for the EK shopping centre said: “It is great to see non-essential shops reopening and more visitors returning to EK, East Kilbride.
“There were queues at Primark and Debenhams prior to opening and we have seen a steady flow of shoppers over the course of the day.
“Understandably, we have had to make some changes in the centre, which shoppers will notice when visiting us.
“The health and well-being of our customers and staff continues to be our top priority and we have been working closely with our retailers to implement Scottish Government shopping guidelines.”
Staff will also be making sure customers adhere to physical distancing rules.
The Centre in Livingston, West Lothian, also had shoppers queuing up outside stores.
Director Patrick Robbertze said: “It was fantastic to be able to welcome so many shoppers back into The Centre, Livingston, today and feel that buzz in the air again.
“There’s a few changes in the mall following Scottish Government guidelines including safe distancing measures and enhanced cleaning regimes, however, our teams have worked really hard to make sure every visitor has a safe and fantastic shopping experience when they get here.”
David Pierotti, general manager at Silverburn in Glasgow, said: “It has been great to welcome back our customers to the centre today.
“We’ve been working hard behind the scenes for the past few months to get everything ready, and we’ve introduced a range of measures to keep everyone safe.
“We know that this new way of shopping is going to take some getting used to but it was brilliant to see Silverburn and Glasgow open for business again.”
