All retailers will be able to operate online during alert Level Three, but there has been some disappointment in the sector, with many businesses saying they could open safely if allowed.

One of those disappointed companies is the New Zealand clothing retailer Huffer - its company director, Steve Dunstan, speaks to Māni Dunlop.
