Dear valued customers,

To keep everyone as safe as possible, the following safety measures are in place:

Increased cleaning & sanitisation throughout our stores

  • We are maintaining extra cleaning & sanitisation throughout our stores, especially to high contact areas within the store, including trolleys, baskets, checkout areas and card terminals.

Hand sanitisation recommended

  • For your convenience, hand sanitiser is available at the entrance to each store for everyone to use.

Keeping a safe distance

  • To assist with social distancing with other shoppers and team members in-store, we will be restricting the number of customers in-store, at any one time and kindly ask that you maintain a distance of at least 1.5m from others.
  • Please stay behind the markers when at the registers, to keep at a safe distance.

Less contact near the checkout

  • Our team members are now available to recommence packing your bags if you prefer.
  • While cash payments remain available, we encourage you to use ‘contactless’ card payments where possible.


As your health and safety remains a priority for us, please respect the guidelines we have put in place. We appreciate this is a testing time for everyone and thank you in advance for your patience and understanding.
