What You Can Do to Make Your Retail Space More Sanitary

Shopping cart full of groceries in an aisle of a large retail store.

Now more than ever we are learning how important cleanliness is. With everything that has happened in the world over the last few months, retailers have begun focusing more of their efforts and resources on providing safe, sanitary spaces for their customers and their staff. Here are a few of our best tips for keeping your retail space as sanitary as possible.

Provide Sanitizer

Make it easy for your customers to disinfect their hands by providing hand sanitizer or disinfectant wipes for their use. Position the sanitizer near the doors so that customers can clean their hands as they enter and exit your establishment. Also make sure that cashiers have easy access to hand sanitizer at their workstation, since they will be handling items that others have touched including credit cards, cash, and items that customers are purchasing.

Clean Thoroughly and Often

Make sure that your high-touch surfaces like door handles and cash registers are sanitized multiple times throughout the day. You should also hire professional cleaners to do a thorough once-over of the entire establishment regularly. Pick cleaners that specialize in retail spaces and know which sneaky areas are likely to get missed as well as where the most germ-laden surfaces are likely to be.

Encourage Sick Days

Make sure your employees know that you’d rather have them stay home if they are sick than come in to work. Especially now with COVID-19, it is of the utmost importance to make sure that people feel comfortable taking sick days so that they don’t infect others.
