Quiz, Glasgow Fashion Firm, reopens online operations

Shares of embattled Glasgow-based fashion firm Quiz rose about 12% on Wednesday after it said it has reopened its online operations.

“Quiz’s own website, quizclothing.co.uk, is now fully functional, albeit offering standard delivery services only,” said the firm.

“Quiz’s priority remains the safety and wellbeing of its people.

“In order to service its own website sales, the group’s distribution centre (the DC) is reopening and will operate in strict accordance with all government and health authority guidance.

“Operations will be undertaken by employees who are willing and able to return to work safely, and the group has significantly reduced the number of employees working in the DC at any given time to enable strict social distancing.

“A number of additional safety measures have also been implemented, including deep cleaning and the provision of personal protection equipment in order to keep its employees safe and protected.”
