Dunelm and DFS forced to close under new lockdown regulations

Dunelm MK 1

Under the new lockdown restrictions homewares retailers Dunelm and DFS stores are not counted as essential.

Unlike during the last lockdown, all of Dunelm’s 145 stores and 181 DFS showrooms in England have been forced to close from today.

The new lockdown regulations permit hardware stores such as B&Q and Homebase, as well as garden centres, to remain open, but do not allow homewares retailers to be open to the public other than for click-and-collect orders.
