Boris outlines how the next few months will look for the business and retail sector

Many of our readers will be so pleased to hear Boris Johnson's address to the nation yesterday evening, outlining a four-step approach to lifting lockdown. With all non-essential retail permitted to reopen from April 12th, we can look forward to bright window displays, shelves of inviting summer products and welcoming much missed customers once again. Over the spring, the Government will run a scientific Events Research Programme. This will include a series of pilots using enhanced testing approaches and other measures to run events with larger crowd sizes and reduced social distancing to evaluate the outcomes. We do hope the results are positive, so we can start taking laps of our loved exhibition centres by summer. Come 21st June, all being well and all boxes being ticked, we could be living in a very different UK, with the promise of all current legal restrictions being abolished. Let the retail revival commence!... read more
