  • Clear Barriers At Cash Registers. The company has installed clear barriers at cash registers that help to protect staff and customers from exposure of any airborne diseases like colds, coughs, and sneezers. The exposure also reduces the level of interaction. Thus protecting all the parties involved.
  • Installing best hygiene practices. Friendly Market is also important as it helps in reinforcing best hygiene practices. It does this through digital media and displaying the screens at the registers.
  • Implementing Social Distancing. The company has also marked stores for social distancing and check outs. All our clients are advised to follow the markings so that they can adhere to the required social distance. The markings are made as per the set standard. That reduces the possibility of the clients getting close to each other. As a result it helps to reduce the possibility of contamination spreading.
