Social Distancing + Capacity Restrictions = Retail Gridlock

It has been quite a year for the Retail industry, to say the least. National and international brands were brought face to face with the stark reality that change is no longer on the horizon, but is fully here, and requires quick thinking and a solution oriented mindset in order to not just survive but thrive in this new normal.

Government initiatives aimed at flattening the curve and limiting exposure to the Covid-19 virus took the form of Social Distancing measures and the enforcing of Capacity Restrictions that created immediate operational and communications challenges as stores were forced to quickly adapt to accommodate.

We see lineups outside popular retailers, a challenge faced independent of the size of the establishment or the goods & services being sold. As restrictions continue to evolve we see some areas around the country entering zones of varying colour that impose different degrees of restrictions, sometimes as severe as requiring shutting down in-person shopping all together.
