19 Jul The Ecommerce News Roundup – 19 July 2021
With more than 46 million people in the UK having received at least one dose of the Covid-19 vaccine the government says we’ve now created a “protective wall” enabling the country to open up this week.
Liberation has been a long time coming and it feels (cautiously) good. Let’s hope common sense reigns supreme and we can remain ‘open for business’ this time.
Summer has finally arrived with the UK facing record temperatures. No doubt we’re being terribly British about the whole thing; by that we mean last week was too wet, this week is too hot and inevitably next week will probably be too cold. But that’s how we roll, right!
Finally, there is so much great stuff going on when it comes to British and international ecommerce – just have a read of this week’s news stories below… maybe with a glass of iced tea or coffee… in the shade of course.
