Regarding Coronavirus (COVID-19)
We maintain strict hygiene protocols so you can shop safely. As always you can rest assured that the wellbeing of our clients is our priority.
Meanwhile, our Website is open 24/7 for you to shop from the comfort of your home. Orders may be placed online or by telephone.
You can still contact us via the above methods with any queries.
We continue to dispatch orders worldwide, arrange personal shopping and store collections (see below).
Pre-existing stringent safety measures have been increased with regards to preparing and packing orders and we remain committed to providing a safe office environment.
NB. Signatures will no longer be necessary at delivery, as drivers will instead take your name from a safe distance and mark as ‘delivered on authority’ or place your parcel in a designated safe place.
Delays are to be expected on a country by country basis with European and Worldwide services, due to foreign postal authorities implementing special measures to procedures at this time. We will continue to keep you informed.
Thank you for your loyal support.
