Two Crawley McDonald’s open for walk-in today

Published

on

Today two Crawley McDonald’s will reopen for walk-in takeaway with new measures in place to help keep employees and customers safe. This follows a successful pilot in June at other sites around the country.

The two restaurants opening in Crawley for walk-in are:

Crawley town centre – Haslett Avenue

Crawley Leisure Park

With restaurant teams adjusting to new procedures to enable safe working and social distancing, stores will look a little different and things may take a little longer.

To help create a safe experience for everyone, McDonald’s has introduced a number of changes to their restaurants:

In order to help serve customers safely for takeaway:

  • McDonald’s will provide clear signposting and floor-markings to create a one-way system around restaurants for customers and delivery partner couriers, where possible.
  • A limited number of people will be allowed inside restaurants to help customers and employees adhere to social distancing – this will vary depending upon the restaurant size and layout.
  • Customers will be welcomed inside when a space becomes available and will be asked to sanitise their hands at cleaning stations that have been introduced in all restaurants.
  • There will be fewer self-order screens switched on and those in use will be sanitised at least every 30 minutes. Customers can also order via the My McDonald’s app.
  • Customers are encouraged to visit alone to collect their food where possible. For those visiting with children, play areas and digital play areas will remain closed.
  • Restaurant seating areas, customer toilets and lifts will remain closed.
  • With dining areas closed, recycling points will also remain closed. The large majority of McDonald’s packaging can be recycled, and customers are encouraged to dispose of their litter responsibly and recycle wherever possible when they get home.
  • To help protect employees and other customers, McDonald’s asks their customers not to visit if they feel unwell.

These measures are on top of those already introduced to reopened Drive-thru and McDelivery restaurants:

  • 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.
  • Restaurants will return with fewer people on each shift, serving a reduced menu* over reduced hours (11am-10pm).
  • Customers are asked to use contactless payment methods and cap their spend at £25 wherever possible.
  • McDonald’s will continue to encourage the use of the My McDonald’s App to view the menu, order and pay before arrival.

As employees and the business adapt to a new way of working, McDonald’s would like to thank customers for their continued support and patience. Customers are reminded to adhere to the guidance from the government and health authorities, especially if queuing outside restaurants before there is space to enter.

On 24 June, more than 200 McDonald’s restaurants will reopen in the UK and Ireland for takeaway, joining over 1000 restaurants now open for Drive Thru or McDelivery.

Restaurants that have reopened can be found via the McDonald’s restaurant locator here.

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.
