Many non-essential shopping chains are preparing to let customers back into stores in some parts of the UK as the coronavirus lockdown eases.

From Monday 15 June, a much broader range of retailers will reopen their doors, including clothes shops, toy stores, electronics retailers, booksellers, indoor markets, shoe shops, tailors, auction houses and photography studios.
