Perspex screens are being rolled out at all Pick n Pay till points countrywide as preventative measures to stop the spread of the coronavirus.
According to the retailer, the transparent screens – mounted at the till and situated between cashiers and customers – have already been installed in over 300 stores and are being rolled out to all stores.
Other measures already in place are social distancing floor markers in aisles, service areas and queues, and there are clear signs throughout stores as reminders. Customers are also being asked to queue and shop with a trolley, in order to ensure social distancing at all times.
Another initiative by the retailer was a special pensioners hour every Wednesday for people over the age of 65.
