A message from the Government to everyone working in retail


The Secretary of State for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy, The Rt Hon Alok Sharma MP, has published a letter to thank all those who are working in retail during the coronavirus pandemic… 

The letter starts: “I know that these are challenging and uncertain times, in particular for businesses and staff across the country. Many shops remain closed as part of the national effort to fight coronavirus. I understand how hard that must be for those who run and work for those businesses and I want to thank you all for following the Government’s direction.”
