From the week commencing 12th April 2021, non-essential retail is finally allowed to trade again. We're pleased to be able to open in our Whitley Bay store once more and have extended our opening hours for the first week of being back, so you can catch us in store Monday to Saturday from 9:30am to 5:00pm. After this first week we will revert back to our standard opening hours.
As we continue to live with Covid-19 in our lives, we still need to all be careful and look after each other. Please ensure that you wear a mask when you shop with us, unless you are exempt.
Hand sanitiser is available in the shop for you to use, and we also have some spare disposable masks (although we'd prefer you to come prepared).
The shop is going to be regularly cleaned throughout the day and all 'touch points' will be sanitised to ensure we're all staying safe. We've removed some of the fixtures to provide you more room while you're in the building, and allowing a maximum of 6 shoppers inside at any one point. Please remember to stay a sensible distance apart from other people and if the shop is looking too busy we ask that you wait outside or come back later.
Our fitting room is open for use and we will sanitise all items of clothing which have been tried on but not purchased. Not only will we sanitise them with hot steam (which is normally more than enough), but we'll also spray everything with special fabric disinfectant spray which kills up to 99.99% of bacteria. So that's a double blast that everything will get!
The perspex screens will still be present at the counter and you'll need to hand your purchase through to us after removing the hanger, which will also be sanitised.
We're suspending our free local hand delivery option for the time being, now that we are back in store, but may revisit this idea again in the future if the demand is there.
Our staff in store have been vaccinated and are regularly tested.
The main thing though is that we are BACK! And we've missed you all.
