Plexiglass will be made available across Daybreak stores as an added protective measure for cashiers against Coronavirus, with the first installations being completed today. This follows the other social distancing and preventative measures that have already been introduced 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.
Commenting on the plexiglass installations, Michael McCormack, Managing Director of Daybreak, said: “At Daybreak, the well-being of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority. To ensure that our staff and shoppers stay healthy and feel reassured in-store, we’re introducing plexiglass at checkouts as part of a range of preventative measures.
“Daybreak also welcomes the decision by the main banks to raise the contactless payment limit to €50, and we’re recommending that customers tap and pay whenever possible. Coupled with our own range of measures, we hope that the higher contactless payment threshold reassures shoppers and gives peace of mind to Daybreak cashiers, who continue to provide an essential frontline service.”
