Beaverbrooks has reopened its online operations and is now taking orders through in its effort to continue trading amid the ongoing pandemic.
The retailer initially closed all of its operations, including its website and warehouse, on 30 March in light of the escalating coronavirus crisis.
The move was made in an effort to “keep our people, their families and our communities safe”.
The website is now accepting orders again, however, and is aiming to deliver all orders within two working days. It is also offering customers free delivery going forward.
In its latest update, the retailer said: “Since being closed we’ve had several messages from you, our customers, wanting to buy gifts for the people you love. We understand that in these challenging times, whilst stores remain closed, we’re all more reliant on home delivery.
“Following government guidance and significant changes to our warehouse operations, we now have a dedicated team working safely to process online orders.
It added: “In addition to increased hygiene practices and strict safe distancing measures, our team are working reduced hours and in limited numbers. It’s for this reason deliveries may be slightly delayed and some products may not be available.
“Doing what’s best for our colleagues, customers and communities remains our top priority and we will continue to review the situation daily. During this time, we’re keen to share the love and will be using our social channels to find ways to celebrate special moments together. Join the conversation, stay connected and stay safe.”
