The restaurant will be used to test out ‘Corona-proof’ dining
The restaurants in the IKEA branches in both Groningen and Zwolle have been opened again as part of a national trial period to work out the correct anti-Coronavirus procedures for all IKEA restaurants across the country.
The measures include no breakfast being served in Groningen and Zwolle, the restaurants also won’t open until 10:00. Customers must pick up their food at the buffet and pay at the checkout. In the queue everyone will have to keep 1.5-meters away; and all tables will also be separated. Employees will also keep an eye on the flow of customers. As reported by the GIC.
The Ikea restaurants – like the rest of the hospitality industry – closed on March 15. The stores themselves were swiftly closed shortly after that.
From April 28, IKEA opened its doors again as a shop. However, the store advises that a maximum of two people come per visit, though families can enter with a maximum of four people. Smaland’s play areas remain closed across the country.
