To strictly adhere to government’s social distancing guidelines, Samsung Exclusive Stores is encouraging consumers to maintain a minimum distance of 1.5 meter between themselves. Samsung Experience consultants have also been trained to follow hygiene and safety advisories
Customers will be encouraged to use digital contactless payments and swiping machines will be sanitized before being given to the customer to ensure the highest standard of hygiene is maintained across our Exclusive Stores.
Only a limited number of customers will be allowed within the store at any given point to avoid crowd formation. At these Exclusive Stores, Samsung experience consultants have been instructed to greet customers with folded hands to avoid physical contact.
How it works:
Store Managers across all Samsung Exclusive Stores registered themselves at surakshastore.com for Suraksha training. After completing the training, they took an assessment test to get Suraksha certificates. All Samsung Exclusive Stores have been following the Suraksha standards to ensure the safety and wellbeing of consumers as well as employees.
