How has bricks and mortar retail performed since the reopening of indoor dining and over the period since the delay in the lifting of Covid restrictions was announced?

We were joined by some exciting industry guests on Wednesday 28th July who shared the trends they have seen so far, and their expectations following the ending of restrictions.
