The Inverness branch of Hobbycraft at Inshes Retail Park has reopened for the first time in three months, with safety measures in place.

Measures include: a queue management system outside all stores with two metre social distancing markers; a dedicated door monitor to manage entry; a limited number of customers allowed in stores at any time and a one customer per aisle policy; a sanitisation point on entry; screens at checkouts; contactless card payments recommended; staff issued with PPE including face visors, masks and gloves; additional cleaning regimes.

The firm has produced a video to explain further how the measures will work.

Chief executive Dominic Jordan said: “Our stores have always been a social centre of the community and after what has been a challenging period, we are delighted to be reopening our stores in Scotland and welcoming our customers back into stores.

“The safety and wellbeing of our colleagues and customers is of the utmost importance and in line with government guidelines we have implemented social distancing measures and upweighted health and safety measures to ensure everyone feels safe while visiting us.”
