In the fight against the corona virus, the discounter giant Lidl is now taking protective measures in its branches.
As the company announced on Thursday, the aim is to “enable simple, quick and responsible shopping” in the approximately 3,200 branches in Germany.
The concept provides for the following measures:
- Account managers at every branch entrance
- Regularly disinfected shopping trolley handles
- Plexiglass protection at all checkouts
- Disposable gloves for voluntary use by checkout staff
- Striking notices and floor stickers on hygiene and clearance regulations are distributed across the entire sales area
“In order for the measures to take full effect, we appeal to everyone to deal responsibly with the situation and treat one another with respect,” quotes the press release Matthias Oppitz, Lidl Germany’s CEO.
The hygiene and protective measures concept will be rolled out across the board, and depending on the change in the situation, building blocks will be adapted accordingly, it continues.
“With the limitation to one customer per ten square meters of sales space and the addition of a shopping cart as a simple aid to maintaining the distance, Lidl also complies with officially ordered measures here,” Lidl concludes.
