Retail: Royal coronation special

A roundup of links showing how UK retailers are gearing up for the Coronation of King Charles III on Saturday 6 May. Add your own finds in the replies.

Apart from the official events there is a lot of focus on localised/self organised community celebrations (street parties and that sort of thing). And there has been much discussion of Quiche in the media (Charles having expressed a liking for quiche).

The 6th is not a public holiday (that’s Monday the 8th); some retailers are closing or opening short hours. It seems that all kinds of ecommerce deliveries will be operating mostly normally although there is likely to be a rush on grocery delivery slots in the few days before, as well as a normal Monday public holiday swing in party food and drinks delivery 1-2 days prior.
