Endeavour Drinks is currently installing protective plexiglass screens at more than 1500 Dan Murphy’s and BWS stores to help social distancing between customers and store teams.
“We commissioned three factories to make the screens, so we could get them done as quickly as possible,” said Steve Donohue, Managing Director of Endeavour Drinks.
“The first screens have already been installed, and our plan is that all stores will have them installed before Easter. All stores also have floor markings around registers to help customers maintain social distancing.
“We know it’s not always easy to maintain social distancing, which is why we decided to install the screens as an additional safeguard for our team members and customers. These changes are in addition to a suite of measures we have taken to reduce the exposure of our team members and customers.”
Each store has a reduced maximum capacity of customers who can be inside the store at once, and a limit on the number of customers who can be inside cool rooms. When maximum customer count is reached, a one in one out rule will apply. Dan Murphy’s and BWS are also encouraging customers to pay with card instead of cash wherever possible.
Endeavour brands have also moved to contactless delivery and pick up for customers ordering online.
“The safety and wellbeing of our customers and our team is of paramount importance, which is why we have been rapidly rolling out a range of new measures to help maintain public and team safety across our brands,” Donohue said.
Endeavour has also joined Retail Drinks’ national voluntary alcohol restrictions initiative.
The limits per customer, per transaction, are: beer (two cases), cider (two cases), RTD (two cases), wine (12 bottles), cask wine (two casks, not to exceed 10 litres in total); bottle spirits (two bottles, not to exceed two litres in total).
(Cases refer to a 24 or 30 pack as applicable.)
