Myer to open store doors in Queensland

Department store Myer will open the doors to five of its Queensland stores in a trial it hopes could lead to openings in other states.

The retail giant closed all of its stores and stood down about 10,000 staff without pay on March 29 because of the coronavirus pandemic.

Its online services remained open.

Stores at Chermside, Carindale, North Lakes, Townsville and Toowoomba will open from Friday.

Cleaning in store will be increased, while hand sanitiser, faces masks and gloves will be available to staff, sneeze guards installed at registers and social distancing signposted.

However, beauty appointments, intimate apparel, suit and shoe fittings will remain suspended.

"Our priority continues to be the health and wellbeing of our customers and team members and to assist and support governments in limiting the spread of COVID-19," a Myer spokesperson said.
