Need some final bits in Penneys?
With eight shopping days to go until Christmas, the store has announced it will open overnight in Wilton Shopping Centre, Cork from 8.30am on December 18th and stay open until closing time on December 19th.
The move is aimed at reducing queues and giving customers more time to shop safely.
To support overnight opening hours, Penneys has increased its night time security staff by almost 70% to manage customer queues and help ensure customers feel safe when they are shopping.
Penneys will also be updating customers via Twitter from 8pm on December 18th to 8am on December 19th, with hourly queue waiting time updates at stores operating overnight shopping. These live updates will help to keep customers informed on queue times and allow them to make a decision to visit the store during quieter periods.
“The safety of our employees and customers remains our highest priority. The ability to stay open through the night has meant more shoppers can shop safely with us over the festive season,” said Olivia Kelly, Director of Sales for Penneys.
“We would like to thank customers for their continued cooperation on our social distancing policy and remind them to be considerate of our safety measures, and of others, both while queuing outside and in-store.”
