In Germany, Europe's biggest home improvement market, DIY stores will remain closed until the end of January. The lockdown imposed in December should actually have ended next Monday, 11 January. In almost all federal states (exception: Saxony), however, DIY stores are allowed to offer Click & Collect options.
