Wilko has issued an update on new protective screens.
‘We’ve always said the safety of our team members and customers is our number one priority and we mean it.
From Saturday 04 April, we’ll kick start the installation of new protective screens for all our tills in store.
To speed up the process, screens will be delivered to stores with a simple step by step fitting guide so that store teams can fit them. This means all stores will have protective screens in place by Thursday 09 April, a full week earlier than the original time frame quoted by the supplier. Here’s a brief summary of the roll out:
Saturday 04 April – 146 stores
Tuesday 07 April – 99 stores
Wednesday 08 April – 128 stores
Thursday 09 April – 42 stores
Total – 415 stores
Full operational guidance for the installation of the till screens will land in stores alongside their usual Coronavirus operational update tomorrow (Thursday 02 April), as well as guidance on the correct use of the tills to maximise the protection offered by the screens. The screens are to be installed out of hours to minimise disruption for our customers and ensure that adhesives can dry overnight before they are put to use in trading.
Thank you to all the teams involved who’ve worked flat out in delivering this safety measure for our retail team members’
