Intu outlines safety plans for re-opening of non-essential stores
Intu has outlined plans for keeping customers and staff safe when non-essential retail stores at its 14 UK shopping centre begin re-opening.
The company said a taskforce of experts from across Intu have developed a strategy for every centre within its portolio.
Plans include limiting the number of people and cars allowed into each centre at any one time and the introduction of one-way systems, floor stickers and staff training to ensure visitors stay socially distanced.
The enhanced hygiene regimes that were introduced at the start of the covid-19 outbreak will continue with more deep cleaning of key areas and touchpoints like escalators, toilets and keypads.
In addition, frontine Intu staff such as security personnel and customer service staff will be given face masks and gloves while the environmental teams will be provided with visors.
Matthew Roberts, chief executive of Intu, said: “We know we cannot do this alone and everyone who visits our centres whether for work or to shop will play their part in keeping themselves and each other safe by following the official guidelines, and the instructions and safety information provided by our teams. Our teams have been working incredibly hard to keep our centres clean and safe during the lockdown and we are hugely grateful to them, and we would also like to thank our brand customers and visitors for all their cooperation and patience so far.”
