One Stop has rolled out its own branded face masks to staff across its store estate as safety continues to be its “number one priority”.
The Tesco-owned retail chain has distributed more than 5,000 across the country this week for staff in both its company-owned and franchise stores.
“The safety of our customers, colleagues and franchisees has always been and continues to be, our number one priority,” said a One Stop spokeswoman.
“With this, we have provided each franchisee and their store teams with washable, branded One Stop face masks, free of charge.”
A number of franchisees took to social media to praise the retail chain for its support.
Sunder Sandher, director of S&S One Stop, Leamington Spa, told The Grocer: “My staff were wearing the disposable ones, but these are far better. They’re washable, breathable, and have a clear One Stop logo.”
He also said they matched well with the One Stop jackets, which made staff look “very professional”.
One Stop added: “In addition to the branded face masks, throughout the pandemic, we also supported our franchise stores with Perspex protective screens, social distancing point of sale, hand sanitiser, anti-bacterial cleaning products and disposable face masks.”
