Latest update on Covid-19

We will review and update this page if and when circumstances change


05.04.22: Unprecedented social, economic and political factors have resulted in large scale disruptions to many global supply chains. Unfortunately, this is impacting the availability and lead times on some of our products. The management team is working hard with our suppliers to resolve these issues, and we apologise for any disappointment experienced.

All stock levels are available live on our website. Stock is interrogated at the point of clicking an item. Therefore, this is the latest and most accurate information on all products and prices!

IMPORTANT: Please be aware that lead times from our suppliers can sometimes change even after your special-order is confirmed. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by these unforeseen delays and remind you to make sure you require a special-order item even with a delay, as we cannot subsequently cancel any items ordered especially for you.


31-01-22: As the current measures in place to restrict the spread of Omicron are now being lifted, from today we will remove our Trade Counter restrictions.

To speed your collections and save you time we continue to recommend you place your orders here online first and utilise our superfast website ‘click and collect’ service.

As per the Governments suggestion please continue to wear a face covering whilst using our indoor spaces.

GOV.UK: People who are fully vaccinated or under 18 years 6 months old do not need to self-isolate if they’ve had close contact with someone who has COVID-19.

Staff members are self-isolating if they have a high temperature, a new continuous cough, or a loss or change to their sense of smell or taste or have tested positive for COVID-19. We respectfully request our customers should adhere to the same criteria.

Please note: unprecedented price increases and delays continue from almost every manufacturer. Please contact your local branch for the latest pricing update and product availability information.

Thank you for your patience during these unprecedented times.
