Is drinking at home the new norm?? Covid-19 has probably changed the way the British people both shop and socialise forever!!
Since the Pandemic restrictions lifted on the 4th July 2020, the country has witnessed the biggest increase in online sales for goods which has not changed since the re-opening of shops with social distancing rules in place.
One of the most controversial attempts to returning back to normality has been the re-opening of pubs, bars & nightclubs and the age group that has entertained their services. With the age group range statistically utilizing this attempt of returning to an area of normality being 19-29, then the question is where are our older generation of drinkers socializing?
There has been a rise and most recently (during lockdown), that more and more people have increased their purchase of alcohol from supermarkets primarily between the estimated age range of 30-55 and that, coupled with the pandemic restrictions being enforced, the new “Drinking at Home” culture has not only continued, but is still on the increase.
One new phenomena to arise out of the pandemic are the Home Build DIY “Pub Sheds”.
South West Electrotechnical Services and their Electrical Division, have recently completed their fourth outdoor Pub Lounge Project since 4th July. Our electricians have seen the quality of builds evolve into proper living spaces like the local Cornish Project featured.
Stand by!!! Pub Sheds, such as “The Sailors Rest” becomes the latest addition to such projects, with some great contemporary internal and external electrical light fittings, USB socket outlets, CAT6 Networked media for that lavish kick back environment. What a great, fun electrical design & installation project to have worked on. Once socialising rules relax, the electrical team are looking forward, as guests, to enjoy a drink or two with our happy customers.
