Neinver reopened its five outlet centres in Poland on 4 May under strict health and safety measures and with over 80% of their shops open. The Factory centres in Warsaw, Krakow, Gliwice and Poznan have implemented reopening plans in close coordination with the brands and authorities to ensure the maximum safety of employees and visitors.

Poland thus becomes the second market where Neinver is reactivating its outlet portfolio. The second-largest operator of outlet centres in Europe and the market leader in Spain and Poland, the company launched its reopening process on 20 April in Germany.

The five Factory outlet centres in Poland reopened for business on 4 May, while The Style Outlets centres in Germany reopened their doors two weeks ago, complying with the new health and safety measures.

The main precautions adopted at centres managed by Neinver include those intended to maximise safety at the centres through disinfection, cleaning and sanitising of the spaces, monitoring air quality at the indoor centres, access control, and other measures to prevent contagion. Regarding the operation and logistics of the shops and their staff, special measures are taken for the intake of goods and for stock management, and for employees’ safety.

Alcohol-based hand sanitiser dispensers are available to visitors at each entrance and elsewhere in the centres, and in both Germany and Poland, visitors are required to wear masks at the centres. The security and access-control teams ensure compliance with health and safety measures and social distancing.
