- Outdoor markets and car showrooms will be able to reopen from 1 June. These businesses will have to meet the COVID-19 secure guidelines to protect shoppers and workers.
- All other non-essential retail including shops selling clothes, shoes, toys, furniture, books, and electronics, plus tailors, auction houses, photography studios, and indoor markets, will be expected to be able to reopen from 15 June. This is subject to the government’s five tests being met.
