Few areas of the economy are experiencing bigger levels of shock and upset than retail.The industry has been transformed, every small retail store from chemists to the convenience store has to face a new normal.

Store owners and their staff are working tirelessly to meet the requirements of the Irish consumer whilst observing Government/HSE guidelines on controlling the spread of Covid-19.

Some of the requirements facing small retail outlets:

  • Providing a safe, hygienic shopping environment is imperative in these unprecedented times;
  • Ensuring Social Distancing of two metres is made possible and is adhered to in-store;
  • A reasonable number of customers to be allowed in the store at any one time – assess if necessary to put limitations on access (especially during busier periods);
  • Manage entrance and exit doors appropriately;
  • Ensure that Government guidelines re internal gatherings are maintained at a minimum;
  • Clear guidelines must be displayed.

Occupancy Limits, Social Distancing and Queue Management Systems.
