Covid Update Notice
Page Updated 19th July 2021
Please Continue To Wear a Facemask
From 19th July the government relaxed most Covid restrictions. Although this has been welcome news for some people, it should be noted that Covid has not gone away and that hospitalisations and infection rates are rising.
For many people, including those who have yet to complete the vaccination programme, those who cannot be vaccinated and those who are immunosuppressed the relaxation of the rules may be a source of anxiety.
We have a duty of care to our staff, customers and the wider community so, in line with many businesses, we have decided to request that our staff and customers continue to wear facemasks.
In order to protect our customers and staff, we do have to strictly observe social distancing guidelines and are restricted as to how many people our shop can accommodate at any one time. So apologies in advance if you do have to wait slightly longer than usual.
We hope that you will appreciate the extra measures that we now have in place in order to ensure your safety. On entering the shop we ask all of our visitors to use the hand sanitiser station which is situated in our entrance lobby. You will then be shown to a designated desk in order to limit movement within the shop. Our staff regularly clean all surfaces and wash their hands between customers and we have employed the use of screens, masks, gloves and extra sterilising equipment including UV lightboxes. Any item handled will be thoroughly cleaned before being returned to stock. Customer’s own items brought to us for inspection will be handled in Covid sensitive manner.
We would also ask that payments are by debit or credit card in order to minimise contact.
