Penneys to offer shopping by appointment ahead of its full reopening on 17 May
The retailer has begun preparations to welcome Irish customers back to its stores.
Penneys has announced that it will be offering shopping by appointment temporarily in all of its Irish stores in the week before its full reopening on 17 May.
The news comes following the Government's statement on Thursday that retailers can reopen in Ireland on 10 May as long as they are either operating outdoors, by click and collect, or in-store by appointment only.
All remaining retail can reopen a week later from 17 May.
In a statement on Friday, Penneys said: "Following the government’s announcement on retail reopening, Penneys announces it will offer shopping by appointment as a temporary measure in all of its Irish stores in the week prior to full reopening.
"The whole Penneys' team is delighted to begin preparations to welcome customers back to our stores. We welcome the government's decision to introduce shopping by appointment as a first step, having already launched this service successfully in some of our European markets.
"We will be offering shopping by appointment in every Irish store ahead of our full reopening on 17 May and have begun working through the logistics, starting with bringing our amazing store teams back to work."
Penneys added that it will confirm the timing and full details regarding shopping by appointment at its stores next week.
