Homeware stores, along with all other non-essential shops, were forced to temporarily close on March 26 as the government tried to stop the spread of the deadly coronavirus.

They were given the go-ahead to reopen from mid-May, with all non-essential stores able to reopen from June 15, but the dramatic drop in sales during lockdown has lead to retailers slashing prices.

Retail analysts have predicted discounts of up to 70 per cent off throughout July, August and September, as well as flash sales as retailers look to encourage shoppers to spend again.

Some of the best deals we've spotted on homeware offer up to 53 per cent off.

Figures from the British Retail Consortium (BRC)- Nielsen shop price index reveals that prices slid by 2.4 per cent in May, followed by a 1.7 per cent drop in April.

Non-food retailers, such as clothing stores, saw prices drop by an even larger 4.6 per cent in May – the sharpest decline since December 2006 – compared to a fall of 3.7 per cent in April.

Helen Dickinson, chief executive of the BRC, said: "Clothing and furniture saw the biggest drop as retailers ran promotions to encourage consumer spending and attempted to mitigate recent losses."

Better online discounts could still be yet to come as shops look to welcome back customers in stores over the next couple of weeks.

But not all retailers have promised to cut prices – Primark says it won’t offer big discounts when it reopens all of its 153 stores in England on 15 June.
