Get ready to grab a bargain on Monday with these top deals from the high street

In the surest sign Britain is starting to bounce back, many will lift their shutters for the first time since March to entice shoppers with sales and special deals.

It comes after The Sun launched our Bounce Back Britain campaign to help put people, communities and businesses back on track.

But while there will be some great deals out there, don’t expect Black Friday-style mega-offers.

Many stores have still been able to sell stock through the internet, and non-seasonal items can be sold at a later date.

Bosses are also keen to avoid stampedes seen at big events such as the ­Boxing Day sales.

John Lewis, for example, is not holding a reopening sale but will run an annual clearance which usually runs in June each year.

Major retailers such as Primark, River Island, JD Sports and Sports Direct are among 3,112 of 5,182 shops that will take advantage of the Government’s lockdown relaxation.

All stores have said they will follow strict government guidelines. Shoppers as well as staff will be offered hand sanitisers and there will be perspex “sneeze screens” placed around tills.

Customers can also expect social distancing measures, with limits on the number of people allowed in stores.

Some retailers such as John Lewis and Hobbycraft are sending videos to registered customers giving them an idea of what to expect. All clothes outlets are keeping changing rooms closed, and Next will keep returned items in quarantine for 72 hours before they are returned to display.

Dixons Carphone chief operating officer Mark Allsop, who is overseeing the opening of around half of the Currys PC World branches, said: “We’re pleased to be opening our stores slowly and safely across the UK and Ireland.

“We will maintain extreme vigilance, constantly reviewing and improving our approach to safety in an ever-changing situation.”

So what can you expect to find in store on Monday?

Here, we reveal some of the best bargains on offer.

JOHN LEWIS GETS BACK ON TRACK

JOHN LEWIS is reopening two stores – and is limiting shopper numbers on escalators to keep customers safe.

Bosses gave The Sun a tour yesterday to see what visitors can expect from Monday.

Customers will be told to stay eight steps apart on escalators and lifts will be limited to one person at a time.

Markings on the floor and lollipop signs will keep customers a safe distance from each other. Staff have 2m-long sticks to measure the space. There will also be a staff host to help shoppers worried about Covid-related safety issues, such as too many people being in the store.

Fitting rooms and cafes will not be open.

Like all stores, John Lewis will have plastic screens on tills and in areas where staff and shoppers cannot stay two metres apart.

Bosses will lift the shutters on 11 stores on Thursday as part of a phased reopening of its 50 branches.
