Retail stores and shops set to reopen next month

29th May 2020, 9:26am | By Ros Griffiths |

Thousands of high street shops, department stores and shopping centres across England are set to reopen next month, if they are COVID-19 secure and can show customers will be kept safe.

  • Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to reopen from 1 June, as soon as they are able to meet the COVID-19 secure guidelines to protect shoppers and workers. As with garden centres, the risk of transmission of the virus is lower in these outdoor and more open spaces. Car showrooms often have significant outdoor space and it is generally easier to apply social distancing.

All other non-essential retail including shops selling clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books, electronics, plus tailors, auction houses, photography studios and indoor markets, are expected to be able to reopen from 15 June if the Government’s five tests are met and they follow the COVID-19 secure guidelines, giving them three weeks to prepare.
