The iconic Buchanan Street shopping mall has introduced social distancing measures of two metres between guests across the mall and in individual retailers with the message: #KeepingSafeKeepingSocial. There will be a restriction on the number of guests in any store at one time – this will be on the store window as each unit has a different capacity and number of staff. Guests may need to queue for stores and there will be clear signage on where to stand to enter the shop, the changing room and at the till.
Princes Square has spacious surroundings and extremely high standards of cleanliness; there are automatic doors and hand sanitisers will be positioned at entrances. To travel between floors, the escalator has been clearly marked and the lifts are for a maximum of one person or a family. Customers will be asked to use the Buchanan Street entrances for now; customer toilets will be open with soap and hot water for hand washing and wearing face masks will be mandatory, as per Scottish Government advice.
The restaurants within Princes Square and hair salon, Vidal Sassoon will reopen on 15th July. Restaurants will be operating at different times and diners should check with the individual restaurants for their opening hours. Restaurant bookings are open for all 12 eateries in the mall and they will stagger bookings to accommodate diners.
Maguires Advertising have created the re-opening campaign: #KeepingSafeKeepingSocial which will run throughout the mall and clearly show which measures are in place; entrances and exits to use and how to make your way safely round the mall.
Katie Moody from Princes Square commented: “We are delighted to be opening our doors again and want to ensure our customer experience is second to none. The safety of our customers is paramount and with cleanliness already to a high standard in Princes Square, we have increased our cleaning schedules significantly. We respectfully ask all guests to observe our social-distancing policy at all times and face masks must be worn upon entering Princes Square and in all retail stores.
“There’s lots to look forward to: we have confirmation of new retailers - which we will reveal in the coming weeks - and the return of our showcase of work of local traders and designers at Princes Fayre.”
