Covid-19 update – 19 July 2021
Today’s the day restrictions have been eased and I’m sure we were all hoping that by now COVID would be “gone” or barely an issue. Cases in Bristol are very high and rates in Southville ward are among the highest in the country so for us it doesn’t feel like it’s time to be getting rid of the protections we’ve had in place for the past few months.
We’re going to continue to limit customer numbers in store (three small bubbles at a time) and ask if you could kindly wear masks in the shop and sanitise on entry. Staff will be wearing masks too. Please consider fellow customers, some of whom may be vulnerable. Staff isolation is a huge problem for many small businesses right now and we also want our small team to feel safe at work.
Hope you all stay safe and well and that these measures don’t need to stay in place for too long ♥️
If you’d prefer not to come into the shop you can place an order online or over the phone. There is no minimum spend for collection orders. Please ring the doorbell to the left of the shop door and we’ll bring your order to you. Collection orders placed overnight are generally ready the next morning. Orders placed during working hours are usually ready in an hour. We will text and email you to let you know when your order is ready to collect.
We are currently posting orders to all areas of mainland UK. Delivery costs £3.99 on orders under £40 and is free on orders of £40 or more.
Due to staff shortages and distancing measures orders are currently taking a bit longer to be posted. Parcels are usually sent by Royal Mail 2nd Class or Hermes. Please be aware of this when posting your order.
You can contact us on 0117 985 3515 or via email on email@example.com if you’d like advice or suggestions.
Pay-and-display spaces can be found on North Street – these are free for 30 minutes, otherwise it’s £1 an hour up to a maximum 3 hours.
There is also a car park just round the corner on Diamond Street which is unfortunately no longer free.
From the direction of Long Ashton, the number 24 bus stops on North Street a few metres from our shop, or outside nearby Elephant House on Dean Lane from Bristol Centre.
