A B&Q spokesperson said, “As an essential retailer, we are committed to providing the best possible service to meet customer needs for home improvement during these difficult times, while ensuring the safety of customers and colleagues.
“After watching other essential retailers support social distancing in their stores, we are now following their best practices and reopening some stores with strict social distancing measures in place.
“As with shopping in a supermarket, we strictly limit the number of customers in the store at all times, so customers are usually in line before entering the stores. All stores have a designated queue area outside and these have two meter markers to help remind everyone to respect their personal space.
“To further support social distance, we have two-meter floor markers throughout the store and have also installed plexiglass screens at checkouts. Only the products that you can buy and take to the store during the day are available to customers. Our services such as kitchen and bathroom design, paint mixing, wood cutting and key cutting are not available at the moment and, for the moment, we only accept payments by card and contactless.
“We continue to offer our Click + Collect service on diy.com. However, it can take several days before orders are ready, and may be temporarily unavailable during peak hours. Customers can also place orders for contactless home delivery for a limited range of products on diy.com as well.
“In recognition of the importance for Trade customers to be able to carry out repairs and maintenance for their customers, TradePoint is available in all reopened stores and our Trade customers can also buy products online at trade-point.co .uk.
“We urge all customers to follow government guidelines for social distancing, to make responsible purchases only when necessary and to be patient while we provide them with the best possible service in the most cost-effective manner. as safe as possible. “
