Retailers open but hospitality stays shut, as Germany lifts lockdown
Retailers in Germany today are opening for the first time in weeks as the country starts to lift lockdown. The sector has lost out on 30 billion euros in sales in just over a month. Retail premises of up to 800 square metres, along with car dealerships, bike shops and book stores are among the first to start trading again. France 24’s Bryan Quin, says the hospitality sector is set to stay closed, with 70,000 businesses facing bankruptcy.
