A Message for Our Valued Customers

Firstly, we would like to say a massive thank you for all your continued support and patience over this difficult period.

Due to the ongoing outbreak of COVID-19 the customer experience at our high street store is going to be a little different. In order to protect health and wellbeing of our customers and our staff the following measures have been put in place:

  • The shop is open with regular hours for appointments only (hours listed below) - These can be arranged over the phone or via email if preferred
  • Unfortunately, we are not able to open for browsing at this moment in time.
  • Upon arrival all customers must either sanitise their hands with alcohol gel or apply disposable gloves (provided upon entry)
  • Customers are asked to minimise touching of items which they do not intend to buy
  • Changing rooms are currently closed
  • Other compulsory health and safety practices are in place for fitting services such as footwear and pack fitting. For more information please contact us via email or over the phone

Meanwhile, we are still open online with free next working day delivery for orders over £20! Thank you for your patience and we look forward to seeing you soon.
