Social Distancing Products For Shops

If you're reopened your shop or business this week, Total Merchandise is here to support you every step of the way.

You'll almost certainly have already made all of the necessary changes to your premises in order to ensure your retail environment qualifies as Covid-secure.

From widening aisles to reconfiguring layouts and incorporating new elements (such as hand sanitiser dispensers by the doors and social distancing floor stickers to denote that all-important two metres), there are all sorts of changes that the typical shop will have needed to make to be ready to reopen... And you've done it!


However: now that you've thrown open your doors again and are welcoming customers into your premises, chances are you might identity social distancing products you need to stock up on (such as branded face masks or signage to display on till points).

Similarly, you might visit another shop and find yourself impressed by the promotional social distancing items they've implemented into their store layout or by little details, such as the social distancing badges the staff might be wearing or the easy-read social distancing wall posters

Either way, Total Merchandise has got you covered, with many of our social distancing products available for dispatch in five working days or less. Whether you want to stock up on branded face masks or perhaps invest in a touch-free hand sanitiser dispenser, we're here to help.

Read on to discover some of our best sellers for retail environments and browse our full range of promotional social distancing products to see more.

Social Distancing Floor Stickers

Dispatch from: Three working days.

Printed with either our default safety message or your very own full colour design, these round anti-slip floor stickers are ideal for use within your shop as well as outside it.

These social distancing floor stickers are perfect for using on the pavement to mark out queuing spaces, as well as for reminding in-store customers to keep an appropriate distance from others. Available to order from just 10 units, they're a savvy pick for businesses both large and small!

We also have Anti-Slip Social Distancing Marker Floor Stickers, too; available in a range of colours with our default social distancing design, they can also be printed in full colour with your own corporate artwork as well. 

Promotional Face Masks

Dispatch from: Just two working days.

With the wearing of face masks on public transport currently a legal requirement, you might be able to help make your colleagues' commutes that bit simpler by providing them with logo branded face masks. 

Depending on the environment you work in, your staff might also be required to wear face masks whilst on the job. Products such as our 3 Ply Disposable Face Masks can work neatly for this, with our Printed Mask Straps helping to make any mask more comfortable to wear for a longer period of time.

KeepSafe Change Trays
