As seen in recent months gone by, the importance of an online service continues to increase but now the public is becoming that little more comfortable with face to face interaction, many are once again seeing just how vital face to face consultations can be.

This has led to more of a demand for the face to face assesments to be done with even more sanitation and precaution than ever before, but necessary steps to getting back to some level of normality.

Face masks are also dehumanising but getting back to personal relationships has seen an increase in positivity in the market. This, coupled up with an expected footfall growth in stores when schools go back can only point to a positive quarter for the market, starting in September and growing further into the winter months.
