In March, Costa followed in the footsteps of many food providers by temporarily closing all of its 2,300 UK stores.
This was in line with social distancing measures that were brought in by the UK government amid the coronavirus crisis.
In a statement made at the time, chief executive of Costa Jill McDonald said: “I want to take this opportunity to thank our store teams, who during a lot of uncertainty over the past few weeks have continued to provide a warm and welcoming environment, and great service to our loyal customers.”
However, branches started to open again in April as the retailer trialled reopening 75 branches.
