EDRA/GHIN's Response to the Ongoing Covid-19 Pandemic
At EDRA/GHIN we are firm believers that DIY and home improvement trade is essential retailing.
This was also confirmed by EuroCommerce, the voice of retail in Brussels, in their first press release on Covid-19 addressing the “decision makers”, to include our sector as essential retail.
We followed this up with our own EDRA/GHIN press release on the 26th March 2020 highlighting “The Essential Role of Home Improvement Stores.”
Many governments also held this belief and classified home improvement and DIY retailing as essential retailing.
It seemed that due to all the Covid-19 restrictions, alongside the need for social distancing, people rediscovered the importance of their homes, and our members were there to support them. The role of the home has evolved, and our members are perfectly placed to enable customers to improve, create and love their homes.
