B&Q has now re-opened all 288 branches

B&Q has now re-opened all 288 of its branches following their closure at the start of the covid-19 lockdown.

Like all DIY retailers, B&Q has been classed as “essential” by the government which means its shops could have stayed open despite the spread of the pandemic. After initially closing all stores at the start of the lockdown last month, the retailer has been gradually re-opening them and welcomed customers back to its final two shops today.

B&Q is imposing a strict limit on the number of customers entering its stores at any one time to ensure that they can adhere to social distancing measures. It is also introducing trolley sanitiser points and contact free payments as well as protective screens for staff on checkouts.

Rival DIY retailers Homebase and Wickes have also been re-opening their shops in the last few days.
