These are unprecedented, enormously challenging times for our country, our people and our industry.

Retailers are dealing with unparalleled uncertainty that is testing their business resilience to the limits, and this is only likely to get worse before it gets better. 

Here, we share resources that we hope will support members during this time – whether providing operational guidance on issues like HR, competition law, cash flow or store re-opening, or ensuring the Government is aware of the issues impacting retail businesses and their workforce.

Some of the content is restricted to BRC members, who have paid for its creation via their annual membership fee.

  • If your company is NOT a BRC member, please email  to see how you can get our support immediately
