Fitting rooms at several retailers have been closed for several months due to lockdowns and Government guidance advising they close. However, now the majority of restrictions in England have been lifted, fitting rooms across the country have started to reopen.
New Look said: “Our store fitting rooms across the UK are open again.
“We have clear guidance for all our staff members in all locations to maintain COVID-19 safety to the highest standard.
“In Scotland, we will also quarantine products for 72 hours after they have been tried on.”
The retailer encourages customers to wear face coverings as well as social distance from other people in store.
Marks and Spencer has regularly updated its customers throughout the pandemic with shopping advice for its Food Halls’ as well as its clothing areas.
The company said: “Our fitting rooms are all open with extensive hygiene measures in place to keep our customers and colleagues safe.”
However, for those who are not comfortable in using the changing rooms or prefer ordering online, Marks and Spencer has also issued return advice.
It said: “If you change your mind, or an item isn’t quite right, no problem.
“Our normal refund policy applies on all orders, but it makes an easy return.”
John Lewis said: “All our services have now fully reopened including restaurants, toilets and fitting rooms.”
The retailer continues to urge customers to wear a face covering while shopping in store.
It added: “Government rules have changed, and face coverings are no longer mandatory.
“Although we recommend you wear one if you can, especially at busy times.”
Taking to Twitter to share their thoughts, one shopper said: “Finally, it’s about time.”
Another wrote: “Needed this, sick of online shopping.”
