Newcastle department store Fenwick has announced it will open its doors again to customers from Monday, June 15.
The store has undergone intensive cleaning, both front and back of house, with extensive social distancing measures implemented.
Under the new measures, hosts will greet customers as they arrive and explain the new system in operation and sales advisors will be on hand to assist customers with purchases.
There will also be clear signage throughout to guide and advise customers while restaurants, cafes, and beauty services remain closed.
John Edgar, Fenwick CEO, said: “With the imminent re-opening of our shops, the safety of our colleagues and customers is our absolute priority and we have been working diligently in order to make our stores compliant with the guidelines, yet still give our customers a truly Fenwick experience.
“We are ready and prepared to open our physical stores on June 15 and we are very much looking forward to welcoming our customers then.”
Other new measures include managing the number of people in the store at any time, each door has been designated as either an entry or an exit, a one-way system has been planned and marked out on the floor, social distancing rules to be strictly adhered to throughout the store, fitting rooms will be closed, no toys out in the children’s and toy departments, and hand sanitiser throughout the store.
Fenwick Newcastle will be open from 10am to 6pm Monday to Saturday and 11am to 5pm on Sunday.
