Building materials retailer Selco Builders Warehouse is reopening its remaining 26 branches on Monday (May 18).
The chain, which has already reopened 42 outlets, is opening for click and collect, and click and deliver – and nobody will be allowed to enter the store.
Customers will be given time slots for collections and there will be social distancing measures in place, the retailer said.
Chief executive Howard Luft said: “It’s been an incredibly difficult period for the whole country and it’s been no different for us at Selco.
“We have been monitoring events and government guidance extremely closely and now everything is in place to enable us to offer our customers a revised service.”
He added: “We are fully aware our customers offer a vital service to the communities in which they operate, providing essential maintenance and repairs to properties, and we are delighted we can make at least part of our usual offering available.
“The health and wellbeing of our customers and colleagues remains our number one priority.”
Selco’s branches will be open from 7am to 5pm, Monday to Friday.
