We've been back open for three months now...and boy are we glad to be back. Our doors opened on the 15th June 2020 after lockdown and we have enjoyed seeing all of our regular customers and lots of new faces (behind a face covering of course) too.
Entrance is via the NEW shop & Exit is via the OLD shop with hand sanitizer at both doors. We are operating a ONE WAY system with Hand Sanitizer available at all times. We ask that you wear a face covering unless EXEMPT.
Opening hours are back to normal 10.00am till 5.00pm MONDAY TO SATURDAY following Social Distancing Restrictions.
For those of you who feel anxious and would like to book a private 15 minute slot. Please email us or contact us through our Facebook page to arrange.
If you would like a DOORSTEP delivery due to isolation. Just contact us via email , Facebook or our website letting us know what you would like and we will deliver to you within the local area.
