SHOPPING CENTRES, HIGH STREETS & RETAIL PARKS

Intu provides more details on how its centres will remain Covid-secure

Intu has released additional information on the safety measures in place at its 13 English shopping centres ahead of the reopening of non-essential retail stores on 15 June.

A task force of experts from across the company has created detailed plans for its nationwide portfolio and has carried out risk assessments for every centre to ensure that they are Covid-secure.

In addition to the enhanced hygiene regimes that were introduced at the start of the coronavirus outbreak, Intu has now adapted its footfall measuring technology to enable it to accurately monitor and manage the number of people in every centre at any one time and to manage queues outside of the centres when capacity is reached. Other measures will include one-way systems, floor stickers and staff training to ensure visitors stay socially distanced once inside.

Matthew Roberts, chief executive of Intu, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming more visitors back to our centres from 15 June in line with Government guidance.

Our centres have and will always be at the heart of their local communities. intu supports around 3% of all retail jobs in the UK and our centres are home to some of the biggest and best brands, so we are doing everything we can to make them safe places to visit and work.

“Whilst the experience for everyone that visits one of our centres will be different to normal, our teams will be on hand to deliver that warm welcome our centres have become known for.”
