Store Open

Looking forward to 12th April

The delightful news came on Monday from Boris Johnson that England will allow non-essential retail to open from 12th April. Scotland is expected to be late April and Wales is expected to be 12th April the same date as England.

We could almost hear the sound of relief from retailers who were forced to close their doors in 2020, these businesses desperate to start allowing consumers back through their doors and for the tills to be ringing.
