No trading restrictions in sight across Europe

Europe is in the grip of a second wave of the coronavirus pandemic. Strict limits on contact exist in nearly all countries and in some cases total lockdowns, such as in the Czech Republic, Austria and Portugal. Restaurants, cinemas and cultural venues are also closed in many countries. In Greece, among other nations, everything is closed with the exception of essential businesses such as supermarkets. Most of these restrictions are in place until the beginning of December, when they will be re-evaluated and decisions taken.

There are as yet no reports of pet stores being closed, not even in Greece. As in the spring, pet supplies are included among essential services. The Spanish pet store chains Tiendanimal and Kiwoko are pushing an express home delivery service with a minimum spend of 39 euros. Pictures on social media from some areas of Great Britain show non-food ranges in supermarkets cordoned off from customers.

The Maidenhead Aquatics chain has announced that it remains open after having to close temporarily in the spring.
