Retailers to reopen today after three months in lockdown

Coronavirus grocery shopper

Retailers across England will reopen their doors today for socially distanced shopping after almost three months in lockdown.

Businesses classed as selling non-essential goods, including fashion operators, sports and leisure retailers and book stores, will be able to welcome customers to their stores once again as lockdown measures ease.

Primark is among the retailers looking to make up for lost time, reopening all 153 of its stores across England today.

Other high street names like John Lewis are taking a more phased approach to reopenings.
