According to Andrew Goodacre, CEO of the organisation independent retailers are ‘ready to open as soon as permitted’

The British Independent Retailers Association (BIRA) is calling for the UK government to make a clear exit plan out of lockdown for the sector, with Andrew Goodacre CEO of the group stating that “retail continues to be and always has been a safe place”. 

The plea comes one week ahead of PM Boris Johnson’s announcement on 22 February, where he is expected to outline his ‘road map’ to recovery from national­­­ lockdown conditions.
