Breaking news as Spain heads into the second week of Phase One of the measures to ease lock-down: some Zara stores are already open, with more set to open on Monday. However, it’s not completely straightforward, since some stores are only able to open by appointment only.
The Zara Spain website says that most of its stores are now open. However, due to space constrictions in some stores, and different communities being at varied stages of emergence from lock-down, they advise customers to check directly with their local stores before leaving home. Some smaller stores will open by appointment only, as there is not enough space for safe social distancing.
Another new move is to allow 30 days for exchanging items, so that customers do not need to make too many unnecessary journeys if their purchases are unsuitable in any way. The premier brand is doing all it can to make it easier for customers to shop with confidence and in safety, while they also keep their staff safe and operate within government guidelines.
Although all Zara’s stores have been closed for the last two months, along with all other retailers of non-essential items, online orders have kept those who continued to work in that branch of the company very busy. And the firm has been manufacturing stylish hospital gowns for staff, who had been making their own personal protective equipment (PPE) from bin bags, due to shortages.
Spain is getting back to business, and here at Spain Life Exclusive, we are pleased to see it. However, the threat from Covid-19 has not gone, we are just learning to manage it and keep ourselves safe. We still need to be careful and consider others as well as our own safety and happiness.
