Staying Covid Secure In Store

Covid Update: We are delighted to welcome you back in-store at our Chelsea flagship from Monday 12 April.

To ensure a covid safe environment our boutique will welcome one client at a time, maintain strict sanitisation measures and require the wearing of protective face coverings. 

What steps do we take against COVID?  

Visitor Hygiene
– Social distancing is observed at all times; Only one visitor is permitted in-store at a time.
– Face coverings are required to enter the store (complimentary disposable face masks provided).
– We are happy to serve clients at the store door should they be unable to wear face coverings required to enter.
– We kindly ask that all visitors use the touch-free automatic hand sanitisers provided within the shop and at the payment checkout station.
– We will assist you with safe product sampling, prepared testers or safe trialing/viewing products.

Staff Hygiene
– Face coverings are worn with all visitors and regular temperature checks taken.

– Regular hand washing and use of hand sanitiser is required throughout the day – especially before, during and after payment/bagging exchange with each client.

– Rapid lateral flow tests are taken twice a week.

Routine Cleaning
– As part of standard infection control practices, routine cleaning is ongoing throughout the day.
– All surfaces are cleaned and disinfected on a regular schedule and also after touching or cleaning. This includes products and items on display, electronic equipment, phones, keyboards, light switches, chairs etc.
– Time is also allocated for routinely cleaning between each visitor.  It is our priority to disinfect surfaces touched most frequently, especially high contact surfaces such as check out station, payment machine, store door handles and door bell.
– In addition to cleaning and strict sanitisation measures, items are also quarantined for 72 hours when required.

About Safe Card Payments

1.  Card Payment Terminal – By Link 

Ensuring a completely contactless payment process, a secure link is sent from the card terminal to your phone as a text or to your email address for you to complete prior to your pickup, or at the shop door.

Processed in a few minutes, you simply click on the link in the text or email to enter your card details.

2. Card Payment Terminal – By PayPal QR Code

If you are a PayPal App user our card terminal will generate a QR code for you to scan with your phone at the shop door. 

This completely touch-free payment process is super quick and the QR code is unique to your purchase.
