Sunday, 29 March 2020 : From tomorrow, Monday, 30 March 2020, the below changes from Woolworths will come into effect to further support the health and wellbeing of customers and team:
Our dedicated Community Hour* will continue from 7am-8am for the following groups:
Seniors and People with a Disability – Monday, Wednesday & Friday
*NEW* Emergency Services & Healthcare Workers – Tuesday & Thursday
Our teams on checkouts will now rotate every two hours to ensure face-to-face interactions are limited to keep everyone safer
Lastly we ask customers to pack their own shopping bags at the checkout as a further protection measure for both store teams and customers. If a customer’s shopping bag is not clean, we will replace it for free.
The above are in addition to social distancing measures implemented by Woolworths earlier this week including:
The rollout of plexiglass screens across our manned checkouts as an additional safeguard for our team members and customers.
A store greeter to wipe down baskets, trolleys and inform customers of recent changes, such as social distancing cues including keeping 1.5m apart, adjusted trading hours and product limit information.
