Were you one of the few who hit the pub as soon as the clocks turned midnight? Or were you in the queue to hit Primark as soon as its doors opened? After months of lockdown, England is reopening for business.
We have all got used to having nowhere to go and nowhere to spend our cash. But as things start to reopen, have we thought about what this means for our finances going forward?
What businesses are reopening?
We’ve reached the next step of the roadmap out of lockdown. Some major parts of the economy are now allowed to reopen, meaning that town centres and high streets will be buzzing once again.
At the time of writing, the following businesses are reopening:
- Pubs, restaurants and cafés for outdoor table service
- Outdoor settings like zoos and theme parks
- Non-essential shops, hairdressers and public buildings
- Swimming pools and gyms
