With non essential shops now planning to open on 15th June, where do you plan on visiting first?

For me, it's John Lewis! I'm 26 weeks pregnant and starting to purchase bits for baby.

Primark! I need new leggings grin

TK Maxx.

I want it all! Clothes, beauty, footwear, home stuff....

SantaMonicaPier Tue 26-May-20 20:46:13

I'm really not sure, I'll be avoiding the bus for the foreseeable and don't have a lot of choice locally...I'm more excited about restaurants which I know will be a while longer yet!

bettertimesarecomingnow Tue 26-May-20 20:48:16

None! I've spent so much online recently that I'm going for no spend!

ThroughThickAndThin01 Tue 26-May-20 20:49:21

John Lewis for me too. But if they operate a one way system it might take hours, especially if you’re following 2m behind a slowcoach??

Clarks. DS is in desperate need of some new decent shoes!

Dd & her friends are desperate to get to Primark (they are 14) I have to admit I’m not really that fussed, can’t think of anywhere.
I have been going out doing food shopping so I’m not as deprived of shops as Dd!

I'm in Scotland, so no shops opening soon but when they do
John Lewis
Local beauty salon nails + wax

Rayna37 Tue 26-May-20 20:52:55

I'm not too bothered now I've realised it's likely we won't be able to try anything on. I'd like Clarks for DS shoes and some decent jeans and tshirts myself but only if I can try on; otherwise it's not much better than buying online!

John Lewis. Then some more John Lewis. In fact, I’ll take a flask and lunchbox. You won’t get me out.

Catlover10 Tue 26-May-20 20:56:48

No idea what they’d be classed under and when they could safely open but I’m looking forward to going to a zoo/farm/wildlife park again!

I can't face the thought of all the social distanced queues and I'm liking saving money so I think none for a good few months (hopefully)

LaurieFairyCake Tue 26-May-20 20:59:47

It just looks like such a horrible shopping experience sad

All of it

CatBatCat Tue 26-May-20 21:01:29

Lush, I only need 1 thing and p&p is half as much as the item itself.

Aposterhasnoname Tue 26-May-20 21:02:48

A baby shop to buy their entire stock for my first grandchild due in August.

Hagisonthehill Tue 26-May-20 21:03:31

Shoe shop.Dd and I both need spring/summers shoes.I only have Sandler's she only has canvas ones falling apart.
We need something for when the summer rain starts.Tried online bit shoes are tricky.

John Lewis as I've got £200 worth of curtains bought a week before lockdown which I need to retirn

imsooverthisdrama Tue 26-May-20 21:06:15

I can't be arsed with the queuing so none , I'm only going to the supermarket because I need food & wine. I could do with going to B&Q but again the queuing is putting me off .
The hairdressers and nail salon I'll be going ASAP when open but that's not till July .

cyclingmad Tue 26-May-20 21:11:06

None, can you imagine travelling to the shops, faffing bout queuing to get in, then follow one way system to get to the rack and only to find they dont have your size. Or what if your not sure and you cant use changing rooms cos not allowed so have to buy sizes either side and then have to return them.

Feck that I'd rather save my time and order online. Least only queue I'd have to be in is the post office!

3 mobile because I treated myself to a new handset 2 weeks ago, I've never bought one upfront and it was a lot of money. During the switch from old to new, my kitten picked up the SIM card I'd laid on the table and crunched through the middle of it with her sharp little fangs. So I have had no phone for 2 weeks and I want to use my new iPhone!

Kcnana Tue 26-May-20 21:31:43

@TrueFriendsStabYouInTheFront Great shout! I think this would be my next stop for some oversized nighties that don't cost a fortune!

@ParkheadParadise I've been watching announcements from McDonald's praying that they open our local franchise next! Imagine a Mcflurry in this weather... If the machines work for a change! 😂
