Prepared By: Benoi Nair
From sanitizing trolleys to ‘safe distance’ markers, Union Coop is leaving no stones unturned to offer a safe shopping experience
Dr. Suhail Al-Bastaki, Director of Happiness and Marketing Department at Union Coop, affirmed that “Union Coop is the first retail outlet that established the ‘safe distance’ markers in its branches for shoppers to ensure a unique and safe shopping experience for them.
Talking about this unique and useful initiative undertaken by Union Coop, he explained: “Union Coop management is routinely washing and sterilizing the shopping carts with water, soap and sterilization materials, in addition to sterilizing the handles of the shopping carts continuously to ensure the safety and health of their visitors, as cleaners were allocated in all the sales outlets of Union Coop, to clean the carts before and after use. These initiatives come in addition to the deployment of ‘wall-mounted sanitizer dispenser pods’ at the entrance of showrooms in all Union Coop branches so that the shoppers can use them free of cost to sterilize their hands continuously, as a part of the precautionary measures to provide additional means of protection for consumers while shopping.”
About the application of health & safety standards in Union Coop, Al Bastaki added: “Union Coop is keen on applying the latest, at the same time highest public health & safety standards in all its branches to provide products and goods that are in line with the international specifications and requirements. Furthermore, our consumers can be assured of the fact that all our front-end staff follow appropriate standards of hygiene and sterilization. We will be organizing workshops for the employees in cooperation with the competent authorities on how to prevent Coronavirus and its spread.”
