Landers Resumes Operations After Its Temporary Suspension
All of the improved safety protocols will be implemented in all Landers Superstore branches.
Landers Arcovia resumed its daily grocery operations on July 25, after its temporary suspension imposed by the local government of Pasig City because of the branch's social distancing violations. The lifting of the suspension comes four days earlier than the 7-day suspension, which was initally from July 21 to July 27, 2020.
According to a post by Pasig mayor Vico Sotto, the local government unit received an action plan from Landers' management last July 24 and has decided to allow the store to open "conditionally." This is still in accordance with the protocols of the General and Work Guidelines, which allows stores to open after two days.
Sotto says that the action plan includes the following: limiting of customers allowed in the grocery, implementation of foot traffic scheme (no u-turn allowed and with signages to direct foot traffic), and that there's staff monitoring on each aisle.
On top of the health and safety protocols required before members enter the shop premises, Landers says they will also do hourly reminders in store for social distancing.
"The safety and protection of our shoppers have always been our top priority. We have been implementing specific preventive safety measures from the beginning of this pandemic that has been a standard reference to retailers in the industry. The action plan we are rolling out today was further adjusted to the behavior and predisposition of our customers. We are happy with the changes that we are implementing and hope that our members will appreciate and comply with, and other retailers to adopt in order for all of us to collectively beat this pandemic," said Landers Superstore president Gwen Lourdes G. Lim.
Landers Arcovia City is open every day from 9:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. All of the improved health and safety protocols will likewise be implemented in all Landers Superstore branches nationwide.
