Our COVID-19 update

Business As Usual

As per the latest lockdown announcement on 4th January, the Government guidelines continue to state that builders’ merchants can stay open. As an essential service, all our branches in England and Wales remain open as usual to ensure the nation’s tradespeople can keep working.

As always, we’re committed to keeping our customers and colleagues safe. Our branches are COVID-19 secure with strict social distancing and sanitisation stations in place, and we ask that you please wear a face covering when you visit us.

A Message from the Chief Executive

As of Saturday, January 16, we will be enforcing a face covering policy in all 69 of our branches.

No customer will be allowed to enter our branches without a face covering unless they are medically exempt.

Our colleagues will continue to offer a face covering to any customer who arrives at the branch without one, free of charge.

In line with government guidance, face coverings have been mandatory in our branches since the end of July and the vast majority of our customers have been following that guidance.

Given the high number of infections currently being seen across the country, we feel it is prudent to take steps towards increasing the enforcement of that policy further.

Throughout this whole process, the health and safety of colleagues and customers has been the No 1 priority and that will remain the case throughout.

I’d like to thank all our loyal customers and colleagues for their continued understanding and support throughout this particularly difficult time for all of us.

Thanks and take care.

Howard Luft
