Those not wearing a face mask or face covering unless exempt will be denied entry.

 

 

 

Please note we are operating a strict social distancing policy in-store. We ask that all customers stay at least two metres away from staff while in-store and anywhere on the site, this includes outdoor spaces. We have an enhanced hygiene and cleaning policy in place around communal and high contact areas. If the store becomes too busy we may ask customers to wait outside until capacity is available.
