B&Q one of 14 stores to reopen to the public


The B&Q store at Manchester Fort is now one of the 14 B&Q stores reopen to the the public. This will hopefully be welcome news to those of you making home improvements during the UK Government lockdown restrictions.

To reassure you of the safety measures in place, we have shared a message below from a B&Q spokesperson:

“As an essential retailer, we’ve watched other essential retailers support social distancing in their stores and are in a position to follow best practice and re-open a small number of our stores as a trial, while keeping our colleagues and customers safe.

“At these 14 trial stores, we’ve introduced social distancing controls, similar to shopping at a supermarket.

“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 help remind everyone to respect each other’s personal space, we have two metre floor markers throughout these stores and also perspex screens at the checkouts.”
