Video report by ITV News Anglia's Victoria Lampard
When non-essential shops in our town and city centres open their doors on Monday it will be the first time they’ve let customers in since the end of March.
ITV News Anglia's Victoria Lampard reports on how our shopping experience is likely to be a rather different one.
It’s taken weeks of planning to prepare for the big day and for those who do venture out next week, it won’t be the shopping experience they’re used to.
Social distancing signs, screens and hand sanitizer are just a few of the safety measures customers should expect to see.
Queues to get into some stores are likely but retailers are hoping people will soon get used to the changes to their shopping experience.
