Crawley McDonald’s reopen for dine-in

Published

on

Following a successful pilot, McDonald’s has reopened dine-in areas from today, Wednesday 22nd July, across Crawley.

This includes:

  • Crawley Town Centre
  • Crawley Sainsburys Drive Thru at West Green
  • Crawley Leisure Park

This follows the reopening for takeaway, Drive Thru and McDelivery over the past seven weeks.

Around 700 restaurants across the UK will reopen for dine-in with customers able to enjoy their McDonald’s favourites inside the restaurant.

Social distancing measures will be in place and, to prevent congestion, the restaurant will carefully manage the number of customers inside.

When arriving, customers will be asked to use the hand sanitiser provided and follow the safety measures laid out in restaurants to help keep them, other customers and restaurant teams safe.

Food will be served by table-service only with customers able to order directly to their table via the My McDonald’s App, at the till or kiosk.

In line with Government guidance, McDonald’s will be asking customers that choose to eat-in to leave their contact details by using their smart phone to either scan a QR code taking them to a dedicated webpage or visiting that webpage directly with the URL details provided on each table. Customers will be asked to leave the name of the lead member and the number of people within their group, a phone number, the date and time of visit and the restaurant number (identified on each table sticker).

These measures are on top of the existing steps in place to help protect customers, employees and delivery partner couriers:

·        Hand sanitiser at the entrance to every restaurant for couriers and dine-in and takeaway customers

·        Clear floor-markings and signposting inside and outside restaurants to help enable social distancing

·        Touchpoints including self-order screens, card readers and doors will be sanitised at least every 30 minutes

·        Perspex screens have been installed in the kitchens, service areas and Drive-thru windows and additional protective equipment has been provided for restaurant teams, including disposable gloves for people in customer and courier facing positions and face coverings

·        Fewer people on each shift

·        Customers are asked to use contactless payment methods as much as possible

Reopening the dine-in area will enable some restaurants to take part in the Chancellor’s Eat Out to Help Out scheme, offering 50% off dine-in bills, up to £10 on Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays in August. Further details will be shared on the website and via the My McDonald’s app with which restaurants are taking part.

Crawley welcomes Furniture Village who will open a brand-new store in County Oak retail park this Boxing Day.

The new location offers a Carpetright concession, providing a one-stop-shop for customers looking to update their homes.

Visitors to the new Furniture Village store will be invited to create their ‘home in one’, by exploring collections for every room of the house, from sofas to beds to dining.

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, comments:

“With much of the UK under lockdown, I’m delighted we’ve been able to open our new store in Crawley. County Oak is a fantastic shopping destination and the ideal choice for Furniture Village.

“It’s been a challenging year for everyone, but I am incredibly proud of the Furniture Village team which continues to offer industry-leading quality, choice and service. As well as Family Retailer of the Year, we’ve also been awarded National Bed Retailer of the Year so I’m particularly looking forward to welcoming customers to our new bed department.”

The store will see a team of 11 expert sales consultants offering valuable insights and advice to customers, all made possible thanks to enhanced Covid-19 safety measures.

These include temperature checks, PPE for all staff and hand sanitisation stations, along with an appointment booking system which can be accessed via the website.

Charlie Harrison, Commercial Director at Furniture Village, adds:

“Customer safety is still, and will continue to be, a priority for us. The feedback from all of our existing stores continues to be overwhelmingly positive, with the appointment booking system providing reassurance and exceptional service for customers.”

The store will open at 9am on Saturday 26th December 2020. Opening offers include Sale discounts of up to 50% plus an additional £50 off every £500 spent.
