On Thursday, England will be placed back into a full lockdown with all non-essential retailers ordered to close.
According to the Government’s website this means clothing and electronics stores, vehicle showrooms, travel agents, betting shops, auction houses, tailors, car washes, tobacco and vape shops.
Non-essential retail can remain open for delivery to customers and click-and-collect.
Other businesses such as entertainment venues must close too including cinemas, swimming pools, golf courses and driving ranges, dance studios, stables and riding centres and soft play facilities.
Personal care services such as hairdressers and beauty salons will be ordered to shut from Thursday too.
Stores which the Government says are essential will remain open and includes those stocking food and medicines.
Below, we’ve rounded-up every businesses and store the Government says will be allowed to remain open during England’s second lockdown.
The list includes DIY stores such as B&Q which closed during the first lockdown. We’ll continue to update this list as and when we get confirmation of other stores staying open too.
