We have been in the US for 14 years and it’s still the same
Furniture shops have been closed in the UK for 14 straight years, even as the UK has been forced to close all of its stores in the wake of Brexit.
But in the United States, where the government has imposed a 10-day cooling off period and imposed a 90-day window for new arrivals, furniture shops are open.

The move is a victory for US businesses that have struggled to find a foothold in the country after the UK voted to leave the European Union.
The closure of UK shops is not a surprise.
British shops have seen their stock fall sharply since the Brexit vote.
The UK’s furniture sector, the biggest in Europe, has been hit hard by the fall in global orders and is the second-largest in Europe behind Italy.
The government has introduced a number of measures to help support UK businesses, including allowing them to keep paying UK VAT on imported goods.
In a statement on Thursday, the UK Department for Business said that the closure of British furniture shops would “strengthen our competitiveness”.
UK furniture store closing in US: What we know now The UK is the only country to have a similar 10- and 90 days window, meaning all shops in the world will open on the same day.
But the government also announced it will allow the UK to reopen shops as soon as it is certain it has all the necessary approvals.
The British furniture industry has struggled to survive in a country that has been struggling with a global economic downturn.
The US is a different story.
The United States is one of the largest export markets for British furniture and its export businesses are the second largest in the EU after Italy.
US furniture exports are up by over a quarter since the UK left the EU, which means the UK is exporting more furniture than the EU.
The EU’s trade blocs trade deals with Britain have made it easier for British companies to export their products to the United Kingdom, which in turn has made British businesses more competitive.
UK and US furniture stores reopen After the UK’s vote to leave, the government imposed a “cooling off period” for British visitors to the US.
It meant that customers would have to wait for at least one business day to start using the UK as a tourist destination.
The number of British visitors travelling to the UK dropped by 40 per cent in 2019 as businesses closed shop, according to the British Chambers of Commerce.
The Government has since introduced a 10 and 90 day cooling-off period for UK visitors.
UK restaurants reopen The Government says it will “continue to monitor the progress of the new US agreement” and the UK Food Standards Agency (FSA) has also said it will ensure British restaurants are operating as normal.
The freeze on the UK restaurant sector is not unprecedented.
The previous government imposed the 90- and 10- day cooling time restrictions on food and drink outlets in the early 1990s, and the current government has announced it plans to extend the cooling time.
