Customers queue outside B&Q in Farnborough, Hampshire. Following a successful trial at 14 branches, B&Q this week announced the opening of more than half of its stores. Some 155 stores are now open, and B&Q plans to open the remaining stores across the UK by early May. The retailer says "B&Q is strictly limiting the number of customers in store at any one time. All open stores have a designated queuing area outside and these have markers every two metres to help remind everyone to respect each other’s personal space. To further support social distancing, stores have two-metre floor markers throughout as well as other point of sale, and perspex screens have been installed at the checkouts".
