With the re-opening of non-essential retail in England, Scotland and Wales just around the corner, the excitement is real.
Grabbing your girls, heading to the boutique, trying on all the gowns – it’s a glorious day that has been unfortunately stripped from brides-to-be’s feet over the past few months. But, it’s about to come back, and us wed-thusiasts couldn’t be more ready.
But while Belle and the brides are giddy, are the boutiques ready?
Owners will too, undoubtedly, be straining at the leash to get back open, but with the pandemic still rife, there’s still some measurements and procedures they will have to implement.
Luckily, the UK Weddings Taskforce’s Retail Working Group have put together a comprehensive Risk Assessment which can be used by bridal retailers. This provides the industry with a standard, easy to use template to keep both customers and staff safe, which, as we all understand, is a top priority.
It provides information on customers, staff and deliveries, as well as actions to ensure that owners stay on top of cleaning and keep employees accountable.
So, boutique owners, get up to speed with it to make sure you’re ready for the grand re-opening.
