News Release: HAMILTON, Bermuda – People’s is announcing new hours for both of its locations, effective Monday, October 3rd, 2022, recognising that customer activity has changed, and there is reduced foot traffic in the city post-pandemic.
The new shortened hours for the Victoria Street shop are :
People’s (Victoria Street)
Like many retail stores, People’s has altered its operating hours several times over the past two years to both manage the staffing challenges due to COVID and mandated quarantines and to best meet customer needs.
“Retail has changed,” stated Tamara Richardson, Vice President of the People’s Group.
“Shopping behaviour is dierent than it was pre-pandemic. Our economy continues to present serious challenges, especially in the retail sector. It makes more sense for us to focus our resources, outside of traditional business hours, on our satellite locations.”
Ms Richardson continued, “In order to better serve our customers, we have decided to permanently change the hours at our ﬂagship store on Victoria Street. Simultaneously, considering the new normal post-pandemic, we have extended the hours at People’s ACW, our store in the hospital’s Acute Care Wing.
Our hospital location serves a dierent customer base, some of whom can only obtain their medications through the more clinical, hospital setting. For that reason, the hospital location is open from 10am to 4pm on all public holidays except Good Friday and Christmas Day.”
The new extended hours for the hospital shop are:
People’s ACW (Acute Care Wing, KEMH)
Public holidays (except Good Friday and Christmas) 10am-4pm
