British Retail Federation: There is no need for people to snap up daily necessities before the end of the “Brexit” transition period
December 13th local time, the British Retail Federation stated that there is no need for British people to snap up their daily necessities before the end of the “Brexit” transition period.
The federation stated that continuing uncertainty makes it more and more difficult for companies to prepare for the New Year, but there is ample supply in stores and shoppers do not need to buy more necessities than usual.
On the 13th, the United Kingdom and the European Union agreed to extend the trade negotiations that were originally set as the deadline today, hoping to reach a trade agreement after the end of the “Brexit” transition period.
The transitional period of Britain’s “Brexit” ends at 11 pm on December 31, 2020.
