Next bosses have also looked at how the layout of stores could be altered to make it safer for customers to shop.
The retailer continued: “During the 18 days of closure we re-organised all aspects of our warehousing to ensure social distancing and improved sanitation.
“We re-organised the flow of pedestrians, adapted exits, entrances, congregation areas, rest areas and workstations.
“In addition, we changed our picking routines and delivery promise to smooth workflow during the day and eliminated the peaks in activity most likely to result in close contact between operatives.”
By making these changes, the fashion brand is hoping to reopen stores once lockdown rules have been relaxed.
