Penneys to offer shopping by appointment before fully reopening

Penneys has announced it will offer shopping by appointment as a temporary measure in all of its Irish stores in the week before it reopens fully.

The announcement follows yesterday’s Cabinet agreement on the easing of restrictions which includes click and collect from 10 May and retail fully reopening on 17 May.

In a statement the Irish retailer said that the Penneys team is delighted to begin preparations to welcome customers back to its 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,” the statement said.

“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.”

Full details and opening hours will be announced next week.
