The move follows the decision to allow the supply of appliances, heaters, IT equipment and other goods seen as necessities during the lockdown.

The company says no stores will be open to the public, who will have to order goods through websites and call centres.

Deliveries will be contactless.

The Warehouse fell foul of shopping restrictions last week when it declared itself an essential service because of its range of goods, before it was ordered by authorities to remain shut.
