In next 5 days, fashion retailers will be back doing what they missed for some time now!
As England’s lockdown gets further eased from 12 April (Monday), all non-essential businesses – including fashion retailers – will be back in business.
John Lewis, the renowned British clothing retailer, has said that it will reopen it stores in England and Wales from 12 April – in accordance with UK Government guidelines.
While in Scotland, the retailer will be reopening its store only from 26 April, the retailer’s much-talked about newly refurbished store at Edinburgh will reopen on 14 May.
John Lewis, elated over the easing of lockdown restrictions, will soon be reopening changing rooms and shoe-fitting for kids as well. Additionally, it is going to restart other services like personal styling appointments as well as technology support.
Next day click-and-collect services too will resume in almost all John Lewis stores.
Meanwhile, another UK clothing retailer Primark has plans to offer extended opening hours in almost every stores in England and Wales.
Primark believes doing so will not only help reduce queues but also give time to people to shop safely.
Reportedly, for the first week, the retailer plans to open for 2 extra hours –one hour before the store opens and one hour later.
It will be interesting to see how many fashion-loving people come out and shop on the opening day. Let’s wait and watch!
