Following the British government’s recent decision to start easing lockdown restrictions, GUESS has decided to re-open a number of its UK-based stores from 15 June 2020.
Store re-openings will be carried out according to the strictest safety protocols and health measures, including regular sanitisation of surfaces, controlling the number of customers that access the store and limiting entry to changing rooms to one person at a time.
Sanitiser stations will be available at the entrance of each store and social distancing guidelines and safety signage will be on display to help protect customers and staff.
To avoid overcrowding and reassure customers at this difficult time, shoppers can also call the store to book a special appointment with a GUESS shopping assistant, who will accompany them throughout their visit to the store. Although the store will be open to other shoppers, customers at GUESS free- standing stores will be guaranteed a specific time slot and personalised service to make their visit more relaxing and enjoyable. This service will not be available at outlets.
The company’s 10 free-standing stores and 10 outlets will be gradually reopened across the country, with many stores resuming normal opening hours, while others will be open on a short-day basis. Store openings, telephone numbers and opening times will be published on the guess.eu website, as and when they resume activity.
During the international crisis, GUESS?, Inc. and The GUESS Foundation have donated over $1,300,000 to support numerous COVID-19 relief efforts, partnering with both national and international non-profit organisations to provide PPE (Personal Protective Equipment), masks, clothing, blankets, food, and medical aid to people in need.
