Retailer Superdrug will be working to keep stores open throughout the Covid-19 crisis where its business is necessary to support the local community.

The health and beauty retailer will be reviewing the situation on a store by store basis early each day and customers will be able to see on its website and social channels which stores are operating. Those stores that open will be operating to the reduced hours of 10am to 5pm to give staff enough time for deep clean shops and stock shelves.

Superdrug has already introduced new safety measures in-store. These include two metre social distancing, perspex screens at the checkouts and pharmacy counter, extra card only tills, the removal of testers and limiting the number of customers per store at any one time.
