Auckland businesses that struggled to attract customers while the City Rail Link was constructed nearby are now hanging their hopes customers will return when the city shifts to alert level 2 on Monday.

They say the city's second lockdown has been the "nail in the coffin" for some.

Sunny Kaushal manages the century-old Shakespeare Hotel and Brewery in the central city, which he said is losing $10,000 a week.

He is the spokesperson for a group of business owners along Albert St and in the food court Elloitt Stables.
