Will You Shop When Stores Reopen?

Its CULTED and we’ve got a question for you.
With the UK high street set to reopen on the 15th of June we want to know – will you be hitting up your favourite shops?
It’s no secret that the economy has been hit hard and reopening high street stores is crucial for an economic rebound. And while all of us miss browsing and copping fits – will people actually be rushing to the shops on the 15th?
Here’s why we have our doubts.
Firstly, it’s not just shops that have lost money post COVID-19 – unemployment has soared and many have been furloughed or forced to take pay cuts.
So will we even have the money to spend at our favourite stores?
As well as this, there are also obvious safety concerns and the risk of infection is still there.
Social distancing will still come into play and Michael Gove has urged shoppers to refrain from touching and testing goods, as well as trying on clothes.
But is that really feasible?
The government has so far sent very mixed messages.
So guys, we want to hear from you.
When the high street reopens on the 15th of June will you be hitting the shops, or will you be sitting this one out?
