Was wondering, with non-essential shops (incl. Hi-Fi dealerships) re-opening in the UK on 15th June (tomorrow), whether anyone has any audio demonstrations or purchases planned?
Most shops seem to be operating on booking a specific slot, so that they can manage social distancing, however that’s probably not much different from how it’s been managed before (e.g. I’ve always booked ahead for a scheduled demo slot)? It does deter the casual ‘drop-in’ visit though.
Will be interesting to hear more on this from folks, especially those who’ve been frustrated by not being able to hear/buy kit during the lockdown.
I know from talking to my Hi-Fi dealer that they will certainly appreciate the trade (internet only sales haven’t fully compensated), and I guess this could be a difficult make or break time for some.
