FORM AN ORDERLY queue Penneys’ fans because the much-loved retailer has announced its plans for reopening.

In a statement the company said it will begin with shopping by appointment as a temporary measure and then a week later will open up all of its Irish stores.

The date will be confirmed but the company has said it is looking forward to opening the doors.

“The whole Penneys’ team is delighted to begin preparations to welcome customers back to our stores.

“We welcome the government’s decision to introduce shopping by appointment as a first step having already launched this service successfully in some of our European markets.

“We will be offering shopping by appointment in every Irish store ahead of our full reopening on 17 May and have begun working through the logistics, starting with bringing our amazing store teams back to work.
