We are delighted to say that we have now reopened our English and Scottish stores in line with the UK government instructions for non-essential retail stores. We have put in place a comprehensive set of measures in our stores to keep our customers and staff COVID-19 secure - we have only reopened each of our shops after it successfully completed a risk assessment to ensure its compliance with the government’s guidelines for COVID-19.
