GUESS to reopen UK stores on 15 June
GUESS has announced it will be re-opening a number of its UK-based stores from 15 June, in line with the government's coronavirus measures.
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, shoppers will also have the option to call stores and 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 freestanding 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.
