The company has reopened all its stores in 50 countries

In Spain and France the store reopening phase has begun with 234 stores

The stores have all the necessary safety measures to guarantee the health of customers and employees

Mango is accelerating its store reopening plan and now has more than 1,000 stores open to the public worldwide.Specifically, it has reopened 1050 stores in a total of 72 countries, 50 of which have now reopened their entire stores network.These countries include Austria,Belgium, Switzerland, Israel, the Netherlands, Poland and South Africa.

In the last few days, the company has begun to reopen stores in Spain and France, where the stores had been closed since 14 and 15 March, respectively.These two markets, the most important for the brand in terms of turnover, have now reopened 234 stores.The multinational expects to have the remaining 344 stores reopened by 2 June.

Mango’s reopening plans for the coming weeks are ambitious, the forecast being to reopen an additional 700 stores by the end of May which, added to the 1,000 that are already open today, would represent approximately 80% of the company’s entire store network.

Safety, a priority

Mango’s priority during the relaxation of lockdown is the health of its employees and customers.In compliance with local regulations, all the necessary safety and hygiene measures have been adopted in all its stores.

These measures include the continuous cleaning of stores with disinfectant products, the supply of personal protective equipment for employees and customers, limiting customer numbers and social distancing between people, and the high-temperature steaming of garments for reasons of hygiene.Furthermore, fitting rooms will only be opened at the request of customers and with limited capacity, and they will be cleaned after use.

Mango has continued to sell online throughout this period, given that its distribution system has not been affected and deliveries are still being made (with the exception of some restricted areas).The company has made every effort to satisfy its customers, adapting deliveries and returns to the current situation, for example, by extending the returns deadline and allowing deliveries to be collected from stores once they reopen.Both the logistics warehouse and transport companies have taken the necessary steps to carry out their work while guaranteeing maximum safety for employees and customers alike.

At the close of 2019, online sales exceeded 564 million euros, representing 24% of total turnover.
