Safe Distancing in Retail
Retailers are currently operating in an unprecedented difficult time and now more than ever it is critical that they quickly adapt to establish safe and efficient safe distancing retail environments for staff and shoppers. There are many considerations that retail businesses must make though when setting store occupancy limits which also allow shoppers to move through complex store layouts.
To help retailers react quickly in response to the COVID-19 outbreak Shopworks have developed ‘Safe Distancing Guidelines’ that can quickly and easily be integrated into any size store. We have combined our best practice floor planning principles with the recommended government social distancing advice to produce a set of traffic flow and floor planning guidelines which you can apply for the safety of your staff and shoppers.
You can download a free copy of the guidelines here and please get in touch if you need more help.
