Well it’s hardly a surprise but one of the biggest retail names that still remains open have announced they are closing all UK shops.
Ikea have stated in the past hour:
“These are extraordinary times & our absolute priority is to ensure the health & safety of our customers & co-workers. As a precautionary measure against the ongoing risk of COVID-19, we will temporarily close all UK & Ireland stores to customers on 20th March, 6pm.”
A full statement can be seen here. There is no word on when they will reopen.
