Greek gaming operator OPAP is re-opening its network of retail venues as the country eases its lockdown restrictions.

With its retail venues closed since 14 March following the COVID-19 outbreak, the operator began to reopen its 3,750 retail stores this week, with street vendors also resuming sales of Hellenic Lotteries’ products.

To ensure the safety of its customers and employees, OPAP has implemented a range of safety and prevention measures, including stand-up servicing without any seating for customers; the use of protective masks by customers and employees; as well as limiting the capacity of each store in relation to its size.

“In this unprecedented time for Greek society, OPAP’s top priority is the health and safety of its agents, customers and employees,” the operator said in a statement. “OPAP assures customers that its employees and agents are working to secure the smooth reopening of the stores’ network and the best possible service for them, offering again OPAP games.

“OPAP also urges customers to carefully adhere to the prevention and hygiene guidelines and avoid crowding inside and outside stores.”

OPAP’s PLAY stores and horse racing at Markopoulo Park, together with OPAP’s retail network in Cyprus, remain closed until further notice.

Shares in OPAP SA (ASX:OPAP) were trading marginally lower at €7.84 per share in Athens early Tuesday morning.
