Safety Signage and Limiting Customer Numbers

For customer guidance installed safety signage will be prominent in stores. This will include instruction around social distancing measures, hand sanitisation stations and directional signage to help manage the flow of customers.

Other factors, such as the way the shop has been laid out and the number of floors, may also play their part a significant factor in safety management.
