B&Q Reopens 61 More Stores

B&Q Perth

After B&Q re-opened 14 stores last weekend amid the Covid-19 pandemic, the DIY retailer has now decided to open a further 61 stores across the country.

Read - B&Q reopens a small number of stores on a trial basis.

A B&Q spokesperson said: "Similar to shopping at a supermarket, we’ve introduced social distancing controls at these re-opened stores. We’re strictly limiting the number of customers in store at any one time, and so customers may need to queue before entering the store.

"To further support social distancing, we have two metre floor markers throughout the store and have also installed perspex screens at the checkouts.  Only products that you can shop and takeaway in store on the day are available to customers. Our services such as kitchen and bathroom design, paint mixing, timber cutting and key cutting are not available for the time being and, at this point in time, we’re only accepting card and contact-less payments. 

"We continue to offer our Click+Collect service at  diy.com. However, it may take several days for orders to be ready, and may be temporarily unavailable at busy times. Customers can also place orders for contact-free home delivery for a limited range of products at  diy.com  too. 

"In recognition of the importance of Trade customers being able to carry out repairs and maintenance for their customers, TradePoint is available at all re-opened stores and our Trade customers are also able to purchase products online at  trade-point.co.uk

"We’re urging all customers to follow the Government’s social distancing guidelines, to shop responsibly only for what is necessary and to be patient whilst we give them the best possible service in the safest possible way."
