Penneys at all hours!
Penneys, like most other shops, has been shut since the second national lockdown of the year.
But, it looks like retailers could be given the okay to reopen for the Christmas period, and Penneys seem to have decided to run with the phrase “go big or go home”.
Yes, the huge chain could be about to open for 24-hours-a-day in the busy festive period. That’s definitely a whole lot of Penneys to go around! The idea is that customers hopefully will not pack in all at once, but be spread throughout the day with more trading hours. Plus, of course, it will give them more hours to sell their large Christmas stock.
Speaking to The Telegraph, Penneys CEO said: “If we are able to trade in some stores up to 24 hours a day, then we can keep people more separate from each other more easily.
“We can keep the stores safer if everyone knows there are plenty of trading hours and they do not have to rush on a Sunday into a six-hour period.”
This is not final yet, but if you ever fancied a trip to Penneys in the dead of night, that could seriously be about to happen.
