THE TRUSTS STORES GET BACK IN BUSINESS TOMORROW
All 27 retail outlets operated by The Trusts will be open tomorrow (July 10), observing their usual trading hours.
The Trusts’ CEO Simon Wickham says today’s arrest of the alleged offender in both armed robberies at Trust outlets has enabled the return to business as usual.
“We appreciate the prompt response from the Police and thank them on behalf of our people, our customers and our community.”
From 2pm today, The Trusts had begun operating seven stores with increased security personnel and measures, as well as additional staff, reducing inconvenience for customers.
“We have received very strong support from our community around yesterday’s decision to close all of our stores following two armed robberies in two days. We also appreciate this has been inconvenient and we appreciate their patience. Thankfully we will have all stores open tomorrow.”
Mr Wickham said returning to a full complement of outlets tomorrow would give staff the rest of today to prepare to go back to work.
“They have appreciated all the messages of support from customers and looked forward to welcoming them back in store.”
