Monday 4 May 2020 13:31 CET | News

Merchants like Best Buy and Kendra Scott have asked their customers to make online appointments to ensure social distancing is maintained.

Although Best Buy prepares to reopen some of its locations, safety measures will be taken. Therefore, shoppers will be asked to make an online appointment to make sure each store doesn't become too crowded, stated.

Likewise, jewellery retailer Kendra Scott will reopen 23 locations in Texas to customers who make an appointment in advance online before visiting the jewellery retailer. Moreover, everyone has to wear masks, while customers who have appointments will need to ring the doorbell outside the store, where they'll be welcomed by a stylist and taken inside to shop. Furthermore, Kendra Scott is offering curbside pickup for customers that prefer to shop online and pick up their purchases in the parking lot.

Overall, as stated by, commercial real estate company Simon Property Group announced at least 49 malls in ten states are set to reopen, with new safety measures to be introduced due to social distancing.
