The retail sector is allowed to trade again: Breuninger kicks off by reopening its department stores at nine of its eleven locations. Today, Monday, the Breuninger stores reopened their doors for shopping by appointment for the first time since December 2020.

The ’beautiful things’ are filled with life again: Around two and a half months after the government-imposed lockdown in December 2020, Breuninger can finally welcome its customers back in person. To start with, nine of the eleven department stores are reopening. Based on the state ordinances already in place, the stores in Stuttgart, Düsseldorf, Nuremberg, Freiburg, Karlsruhe, Reutlingen, MTZ, Ludwigsburg and Sindelfingen can reopen under strict adherence to the specified hygiene and safety measures.

All locations, with the exception of Sindelfingen, are implementing the Click&Meet concept, which was presented at the federal state conference and makes arrangements for shopping by appointment. These appointments can be booked in advance by telephone or easily on site at the entrance to the stores, subject to capacity. The Breuninger Store in BreuningerLand Sindelfingen can currently be visited without booking an appointment due to the current low level of incidence.

Both sides – Breuninger employees and Breuninger customers – were delighted about this first important step in reopening the retail sector. Breuninger CEO Holger Blecker on the first stage of returning to shopping: “Over the past few weeks, we have campaigned with a lot of commitment, heart and soul and, above all, well-founded arguments to reopen with an effective hygiene concept. We are absolutely delighted about this first step, even if we have not yet reached our goal. But now we can prove that there is no contradiction between combating the pandemic and also providing retail with appropriate hygiene standards”.

In addition to the department stores reopening as of today, all Breuninger confectioneries will also be open again from 11 March 2021. The confectionery in Flagship Stuttgart is welcoming all customers back from today, 8 March 2021.
