As we start to prepare for the re-opening of stores it is likely that some virus control restrictions will continue to be necessary to limit transmission. The safety and wellbeing of every retailers’ staff and customers is a top priority.
The British Retail Consortium have published a helpful guide for retailers with recommended social distancing procedures. This is to prepare you for reopening whilst putting measures in place to avoid the spread of the coronavirus.
If you are still temporarily closed, the Retailer Group have compiled a useful checklist to ensure your premises are secure and not incurring unnecessary costs during lock-down. The list includes suggestions such as checking and cancelling any forward orders from suppliers, stopping monthly charges from card payment providers, making sure timers for lighting and heating are switched off or on revised settings.
