Retailers are looking forward to getting shops open again - potentially next Thursday. Under the guidelines announced by the Prime Minister yesterday, larger retail stores and shopping malls will be required to "follow the lead of supermarkets" and restrict the number of people allowed in at any one time.

Dallas Pendergrast, who co-owns Glenfield Mall in Auckland, says there has not been nearly enough information on what's expected. 

Kathryn also talks with Leeann Watson from the Canterbury Employers' Chamber of Commerce, and Steve Canny from the Southland Regional Development Agency - Great South.
