A businessman is pleased to welcome back customers following changes to government coronavirus guidance.

ITS has reopened its stores' showrooms in Harlow, Walthamstow, and Leyton, meaning customers can now browse the wares.

The trade and DIY supplier was previously operating a limited service, with no browsing, but is now welcoming customers back into stores.

Managing director Paul Hubbard said: "So customers are now welcomed back inside our stores and are able to look around and browse safely.

"We have strict social distancing in place with floor markers to help ensure it is adhered to. All staff wear masks and face visors and there is also protective screens at the counters.

"These measures along with regular cleaning procedures help to ensure maximum safety and peace of mind for our customers.

He added: "It’s great to be able to allow customers back in as they have been keen to get back in and look around.

"We obviously have applied a cautious approach throughout this situation and have only moved onto each phase of opening once completely satisfied."

Customers can visit ITS stores for all DIY and home improvements needs and stock products suitable for homeowners as well as professional tradesmen.
