Dealz announced plans to keep its stores closed on St. Stephen’s Day and New Year’s Day during a recent conference in Manchester.
Commenting on the plan, Dealz managing director Barry Williams said: “At the beginning of the pandemic in April 2020, we were the first retailer to commit to giving all our colleagues a well-earned rest at Christmas 2020 by keeping stores closed on Boxing Day and New Year’s Day.
“They deserve the same in 2021 and at our Christmas conference today in Manchester, we’ve shared that good news.
“Throughout the last 18 months, our colleagues have been heroes – quietly turning up to work to serve their communities right across the UK and Ireland.
“By closing on Boxing Day and New Year’ Day, we recognise that service and the chance to spend extra time with their families.”
Further, Dealz confirmed that it would double the value of the Christmas voucher for its 18,000-strong team, giving each person €60 to spend on Christmas gifts.
