The stores will start reopening from Thursday, the company said with social-distancing protocols in place as well as increased cleaning and sanitizing.

The company said it would serve most beverages, including everything lattes and frappuccinos, but limited food items.

Starbucks, which owns about a thousand restaurants in the United Kingdom, closed all its stores in March following government-mandated lockdown in the country to curb the spread of the virus.
