Central England Co-operative provides coronavirus safety measure update
Central England Co-operative has provided an update on the safety measures it has put in place throughout the coronavirus crisis.
The business has implemented social distancing across its entire family of businesses and employed an extra 150 security guards in its stores and distribution centres to ensure security measures are adhered to. It has also recruited over 1,000 extra staff members to help in stores.
Other measures include the installation of almost 1,000 kiosk and checkout screens and the sourcing of tens of thousands of gloves and masks for use by staff in its stores and funeral homes.
Central England Co-operative has also launched a 10% discount and priority access for NHS staff.
Debbie Robinson (pictured), Central England Co-operative chief executive, said: “As a co-operative retailer, we want to make sure we are leading the way for our communities during this difficult time.
“We hope that these measures and the work of our colleagues, members and customers show that we are coming together for our communities during this uncertain time and reacting to the challenges we face.”
