Pandemic Weekly Update #8

connect logo large

A big day is approaching, possibly the best Monday so far this year… yeah, that’s right, even better than the Bank Holiday’s have been! Monday the 15th of June; the day when non-essential retail can reopen (note: when barbers and pubs reopen, that will probably overtake this as the best Monday). No doubt a lot of people have plans to rush straight to Primark to stock up that summer wardrobe, others will be flocking to Argos to get the latest homeware and gadgets, and others will be making their way to Connect Insurance to come and arrange a new policy! That’s right, our doors will be open to the public once more! Step right up!

Already we’ve seen a few stores reopening such as Subway, Poundbakery and KFC. As many parents will be aware MacDonalds have clearly reopened their doors (*technically their drive-thrus) and there’s a whole bunch of happy kids out there with Happy Meals (and an increased chance of obesity when they’re older). We’ve heard fantastic news that Chester Zoo alongside others will be able to reopen to the public after overwhelming concern they would be another victim to the economic collapse. Even theme parks such as Alton Towers and their Splash Landings water park should be able to open with a few weeks. Overall, the country seems to be making strides back toward normality and it looks like we may still be able to have some fun this summer after all! Hurrah!

> Connect will be open again from Monday June 15th <

As the Covid stats continue to trend downward, we continue to see an uptick in business here at Connect. As more industries head back to their offices and venues, we expect to see more demand for our insurance products in the coming weeks. This is a huge relief to our staff who have been working hard throughout the pandemic to keep our customers policies maintained, all whilst risking contracting the virus and with the financial uncertainty of the collapsing economy looming over their heads like a guillotine. It looks like we’re going to be okay though, it looks like we may make it to the light at the end of the tunnel. It looks like the apocalypse has been postponed for now.

Should you need any assistance with your existing cover, we are still here working hard to deliver our usual level of customer service and support. Whether your renewal is due, you need to make a claim or it’s a new insurance policy you require… we’re key workers here, and we’re just a call away.
