With the prospect of more local lockdowns on the cards, Retail Week explores how retailers can manage and plan for an uncertain future.
On June 30, Leicester became the first city in the UK to go back into lockdown, affecting retailers across the region.
Stores on the non-essential list have been closed, while those permitted to stay open have faced difficult decisions about how to operate.
Residents have also been encouraged to stay at home where possible and avoid travel in and out of the city limits.
The city and its surrounding area is a hub for retail headquarters, factories and is home to shopping destination Fosse Park, all of which have been affected by the lockdown regulations that will be active for at least the next two weeks.
