and live on Freeview channel 276
The sandwich shop announced a "phased" reopening of around 600 UK stores on Tuesday, May 12 .
The company says that approximately a quarter of stores will start to reopen their doors – on a takeaway basis or through third party delivery partners including Just Eat, Uber Eats and Deliveroo.
According to the website, Subway stores are open in the following locations:
Unit 10, Collinsway, Ings Road, Westgate Retail Park
Unit 7, Snowhill Retail Park,
They say they have implemented measures including new fixtures, directional signage, enhanced hygiene practices and PPE equipment to ensure social distancing can take place and to protect customers, delivery drivers and staff.
It also says that these procedures will ensure the branches, which operate on a franchise model, are able to trade responsibly.
The measures have already been tested in the small number of stores that have remained open to support and serve key workers and hospital staff over recent weeks.
Colin Hughes, Country Director, Subway UK & Ireland said: “Everybody in our Subway family and the wider communities they serve, has shown great resilience in adapting to these challenging times that we currently find ourselves in.
“We are extremely grateful for their ongoing support in anticipation of this next phase of our gradual reopening, which will enable us to continue to serve our communities and frontline workers, who have helped us all so much in recent weeks.
“We have slowly and safely introduced a new store operating framework that will be rolling out across stores to protect guests, Sandwich Artists™, delivery drivers and our suppliers. The weeks and months ahead will continue to be challenging for everyone and Subway will play its part in supporting the new normal whatever that may look and feel like.”
Subway is currently offering a 25% discount to all NHS and key workers, and says it has already donated over 250,000 sandwiches to ‘local communities, key workers and those who really need them.
