John Lewis and others were fined.
John Lewis plans to start reopening its 50 UK stores over a four week staggered period from mid May.
According to The Mail on Sunday the move will only go ahead after the government has given the green light for non-essential shops to resume trading.
While 35 department stores and 15 smaller John Lewis at Home shops have been shut down for a month, the supermarket side of the John Lewis Partnership, Waitrose, has largely remained.
Stores with large car parks are expected to open first, of which there are reportedly about 20, with city departments expected to be last.
