SuperValu to make plexiglass available at tills for added protection for cashiers
19 March 2020 | 0
Plexiglass is to be made available across SuperValu stores as an added protective measure for cashiers against coronavirus, with the first installations being completed today.
This follows the social distancing and preventative measures already introduced by Musgrave such as hand sanitisers and tape on the floor to show customers how far to stay apart in queues, along with community supports for elderly and vulnerable people.
“We are going above and beyond for our team and customers who visit our stores by making this investment,” said managing director of SuperValu, Martin Kelleher.
“It is very important for us to give peace of mind to our people, especially our cashiers who are the face of SuperValu,” he added.
The MD thanked customers for their “ongoing patience” and asked them to take note of the various measures in place.
Musgrave has also welcomed yesterday’s announcement by the banks that they will be raising the contactless threshold to €50. Customers have been asked to “tap and pay wherever possible, or to use their smartphone for higher value purchases”.
Plexiglass will also be installed across Daybreak and Centra stores.
