ScS delays results after government’s coronavirus policy shift


ScS has delayed the release of its half-year results following yesterday’s changes to the government’s coronavirus policy.

The furniture retailer said it was “currently reviewing” the changes unveiled by Prime Minister Boris Johnson yesterday, which included urging people to avoid pubs, clubs, restaurants, theatres and other social environments.

Johnson also warned that Brits should “avoid all unnecessary social contact”, “stop all unnecessary travel” and work from home if possible, under the government’s plans to slow the spread of the virus.

ScS said its results would be “subject to a short delay” while it reviews them with its auditors.
