Over the coming months, the UK's lockdown restrictions will begin ease and the economy will reopen. This process will begin with the reopening of non-essential retail stores from as early as April 12. Since retail stores have been closed throughout the country from the beginning of 2021, it's crucial that you take the time to prepare your business, customers, and staff for your long-awaited return.
