Why Have a Phased Approach to Opening?

Things could take some time to get back to pre-Covid19 normal and you may have reduced customer footfall as a result. Longer opening hours could be a drain on your finances so it’s important to consider what your new normal looks like in the interim. Encouraging prebooking work ahead of opening can help avoid this, as can phasing your reopening over the course of a few weeks. Think about your short, medium and longer-term needs, ensuring you have a plan in place for each of them. You should consider:

  • Your workforce – when to bring back technicians in line with demand
  • Revising opening times – you may find there is a slow start as people begin to gain confidence so reduced hours to 9am – 4pm for example, could be the solution
