Covid-19 Shop Guidance

In order to inform our customers of new policies and measures taken during the Covid-19 pandemic, we’ve created this page as a source of information relating to our business and how we’re making our shop Covid-Safer.

We ask that all visitors to our shop adhere to these guidelines for everyone’s safety. Thank you for your understanding.

Please read our Shop Announcements section for the most recent information relating to the COVID-19 situation and our business.

Customer Guidance

Shop Capacity for Customers

Since the slight ‘easing’ of restrictions we have removed the limit to the maximum number of people that could enter our shop. Our shop space is still as small and we can accommodate only a small number of customers at any one time – regardless of restrictions. Please respect other people’s space at all times whilst visiting our shop. If it really is too busy, please be patient. Thank you.

Face Coverings

Face Covering

It is still mandatory for customers to wear face coverings in shops in Scotland, unless a medical condition prevents you from doing so. Please adhere to this requirement. We appreciate face masks can be uncomfortable and feel restrictive to some people, which is why other face coverings are perfectly acceptable – scarfs, snood, bandana…

Staff & Shop Measures

Screens
We have installed pvc screens on our counters, which provides some level of protection for both our customers and staff.

Hand Sanitiser
We’ve also installed extra hand-sanitiser dispensers in our back shop for the staff to use.

Reduced Hours
Our shop door opening times have been slightly reduced.

Face Covering
Our staff wear face coverings in the front shop as much as possible, though under some circumstances when working with sharp implements or other potentially harmful machinery this isn’t also possible.
