German DIY stores and garden centres remain open so far.

In Germany, DIY stores will be able to remain open when the closing of retail shops comes into force. This has been agreed by the Federal Government and the governments of the 16 Federal States. In the guidelines, DIY-, garden- and pet stores are among those which are named as being an exception to the rule that all businesses which do not sell goods for everyday needs are to be closed. For the businesses which are to remain open, Germany's strict Sunday sales ban is to be generally suspended until further notice. However these shops must ensure that admission is regulated and queues are avoided.
