Paddy Power opens stores in England and Ireland

Paddy Power opens stores in England and Ireland

When is Paddy Power re-opening its stores?

All of Paddy Power’s shops in England will be reopening from Monday 15th of June with strict measures in place that follow official governmental guidelines.

As Paddy Power’s shops reopen, our number one priority is keeping our customers and team members safe. So, all our shops will follow the latest government guidelines on social distancing. Here’s more on what to expect in our shops.

  • They will be managing the number of customers in our shops at any one time. This is subject to space in each shop.
  • You’ll notice floor markings in-store to help you queue safely. Same rules apply, at least two metres from others.
  • Please use our hand sanitizers when entering Paddy Power shops, before and after machine use, and again when you leave.
  • It’s best to use contactless payment  where possible.
  • When writing out bets, please take the pen with you or bin it.

What about the rest of the UK & Ireland?

150 Paddy Power shops in Ireland will reopen on Monday 15th of June with a view to opening more in the near future as the situation develops. Scotland, Wales and N.Ireland stores are to remain closed until further notice. 

They are encouraging visitors to limit the time spent in-store and to remain courteous and respectful to Paddy Power staff and to head home and isolate if you start to feel unwell.

While shops were closed Paddy Power offered to credit winning in-store slips online and hundreds of you took this up, ensuring Paddy was still paying out – even when the sport stopped! If you’ve still got a winner lying around, email a picture of the slip, along with your name, online username and a contact number to [email protected].

This news is the latest ray of light in these dark times after horse racing returned in the UK and Ireland earlier this month. The Premier League is expected to start next week and you can get involved with the action in all stores in England, 150 in Ireland and online at Paddypower.com.

 

Lenny’s Last Word

After the last few months Lenny likes any sign of normality, and this signals that slowly but surely things are returning back to normal.  Paddy Power in particular have done fantastically to keep their customer in-tune via their online offerings and payout efficiency throughout all of this, perhaps encouraging more punters to use the online space. This comes as no surprise with some of Paddy Power’s online promotions. We urge everyone who plans on visiting betting stores to remain vigilant and to familiarise themselves with the in-store guidelines before entering.
