Convenience store chain Daybreak has started installing Plexiglass at tills in it's stores across the country, as an added protective measure for cashiers against Coronavirus, with the first installations being completed yesterday.
This follows the other social distancing and preventative measures that have already been introduced such as hand sanitisers and tape on the floor to show customers how far to stay apart in queues, along with community supports for elderly and vulnerable people.
“At Daybreak, the well-being of our colleagues and customers is our number one priority," said Michael McCormack, managing director of Daybreak.
To ensure that our staff and shoppers stay healthy and feel reassured in-store, we’re introducing plexiglass at checkouts as part of a range of preventative measures."
Contactless Payment Limit Increase
Daybreak said that it welcomes the decision by the main banks to raise the contactless payment limit to €50, and it is recommending that customers tap and pay whenever possible.
McCormack added: "Coupled with our own range of measures, we hope that the higher contactless payment threshold reassures shoppers and gives peace of mind to Daybreak cashiers, who continue to provide an essential frontline service.”
Part of the Musgrave Group, Daybreak currently has over 200 stores nationwide.
All stores are independently owned by local retailers.
