Samsung India plans to open its stores in phases this week

Samsung India is planning to reopen Samsung Smart Cafes and Smart Plazas in India this week. The company took the decision in accordance with the government’s announcement to allow limited trade in orange and green zones.

The Indian government has divided the country into three zones– red, orange and green. Earlier this week, the government announced that it will be allowing businesses to open up in orange and green zones. All the businesses in the red zone will stay closed due to a large number of coronavirus infections in these regions. Samsung has noted that it will be following government guidelines and sanitizing the stores before opening them for the customers. A Samsung spokesperson told Times Now:

Accordingly, all Samsung Smart Cafes and Smart Plazas will follow social distancing and sanitization guidelines to safeguard the health and safety of our customers, employees, vendors and partners.

At all our stores, Samsung experience consultants have been instructed to greet customers with folded hands to avoid physical contact.

Samsung will also follow social distancing guidelines and ensure everyone is at least 1.5m apart. The company will also install hand sanitizers at all touch points including entry and exit. Furthermore, employees will be provided with hand gloves for their own safety.
