“Since the onset of the pandemic our first priority has been protecting the health and safety of our guests, clients, and our own employees across our portfolio of properties,” said John Sullivan, President & CEO, Cadillac Fairview. “With the COVID-19 environment continually evolving, we felt compelled to share important safety messages from the teams who are on the frontlines every day. I continue to be extremely proud of our people who make it their top priority to ensure our properties are safe and comfortable for our community of guests.”
Adapting wayfinding and increased cleaning measures make visits efficient and safe
CF has made considerable improvements to support safe traffic flow and physical distancing with increased property signage, directional floor decals and digital wayfinding tools on its mobile app, LiVE by CF, to help guests better navigate their shopping trips. To ensure physical distancing, increased signage has been placed in all property areas with limits on the number of elevator occupants and ensuring safe distancing on escalators. Increased cleaning routines and easy to locate sanitation stations throughout each property helps to alleviate any uncertainties that guests, retailers and employees may have while visiting one of CFs 19 retail properties.
In-house innovation delivers best in class tools and retail support
CF continues to ensure retail-specific needs are met by providing CF’s community of customers with industry leading offerings via digital and physical tools. CF’s new line management offering, CF Guest List, is now in pilot, along with curbside pickup locations and mobile based retail promotions via LiVE by CF. Together, these specific offerings support the company’s ongoing focus on reconnecting retail clients and shoppers, and safeguarding them while in-property.
“During this pandemic, we have moved quickly and decisively to adapt our shopping centres and offices to new and unprecedented safety needs,” said Sal Iacono, EVP of Operations, Cadillac Fairview. “We have received praise from public health officials for our response to COVID-19 in our centres and this PSA campaign reminds of all of our shared duty to continue to keep one another safe.”
Guests can look to CF’s digital channels (website, social media), LiVE by CF or Guest Services through the CF SHOP! Text service for any property updates.
Given the recent increase in COVID-19 cases, Cadillac Fairview will continue to monitor and pay close attention to the local COVID-19 environment and prepare for various scenarios, including potentially re-implementing restrictions at the guidance of public health. Since the beginning of the pandemic CF has put in place a number of additional safety measures, including physical distancing, traffic flow management, use of personal protective equipment and increased cleaning of high touch point surfaces, all in an effort to help fight the spread of COVID-19.
