1. Are Wazobia African Market’s physical stores open as normal?
Yes, all Wazobia African Market branches are open as usual. We continue to manage the number of customers in our stores to help you keep a safe distance from others while you’re shopping. We know this can sometimes cause queues – so it’s a good idea to try shopping earlier or later in the day, when it tends to be quieter. We have also put in place some additional measures to help our shops meet the needs of our customers, particularly the disabled, elderly and vulnerable, at this time. Our disabled, elderly and vulnerable customers are prioritized whenever there’s a queue within or outside one of our stores – and we’ll continue to prioritize health care workers and care-givers, too.
2. What social distancing measures are you putting into your stores for your customers and employees?
We have a number of measures to help protect both our customers and our employees. These include:
- Dedicated employees at each store to help manage queues, ensuring only customers and employees that are wearing masks are allowed into the stores and reminding customers to keep a safe distance.
- Floor markers in all stores to help customers observe social distancing.
- Hand sanitizer stations at the entrances of all our stores.
- We’re asking customers to help us manage the number of people in our stores, by sending only one member of the household to do their shopping, if they possibly can. While this won’t be possible for everybody, we are very grateful for our customers’ support during this time of uncertainty.
- We are encouraging our customers to shop in a cashless and contactless way to prevent unnecessary contact. To find out more, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
3. Are you asking customers to wear face masks when they are shopping?
Yes, we’re asking customers to wear a face covering while shopping with us. All customers, apart from children under two years of age and those with certain health conditions who are exempt, should wear a face covering. We enjoin all our esteemed customers to please remember that not all disabilities are visible, and be understanding of other shoppers who may not be able to follow this rule.
4. What are you doing to support disabled, elderly and vulnerable shoppers, as well as health care workers?
In our stores, we prioritize our disabled, elderly and vulnerable customers whenever there’s a queue outside one of our shops – and we’ll continue to prioritize health care workers and care-givers on production of suitable ID, too.
5. Are you stopping any of your services as a result of coronavirus?
No, all of our services are available. We have however implemented increased health and safety protocols to ensure our valued employees and customers stay safe while they are shopping.

We have robust hygiene procedures in place and are providing regular updates to our employees to ensure they have appropriate advice. All equipment in store, such as scanners, payment terminals, trolley handles and tills are cleaned daily and at every available opportunity. Hand sanitizing wipes have also been provided for our employees who do not always have easy access to hand-washing facilities, including our checkout and welcome desk staff as well as delivery drivers.
