Lockdown Law Update

As the Country slowly pulls out of “lockdown”, the UK Government has announced what shops and business can now re-open, and from when, and clarified which will not yet be permitted to re-open.

From the 1st June 2020, Outdoor Markets and Car Showrooms will be allowed to open as soon as they are able to meet the COVID-19 safety guidelines to protect shoppers and workers.

From the 15th June 2020, all other non-essential retail can re-open, and these include (but are not limited to):

  • Clothes shops
  • Shoe shops
  • Toy shops
  • Furniture shops
  • Bookshops
  • Electronics
  • Tailors
  • Auction houses
  • Photography studios
