Retail reopening 15th June


Recommended Posts

The retail section of my business opens full time today (15.06.2020) since March 23rd

As a bare minimum I have placed counter shields and a few notices to conform with guidelines.

I have not made the wearing of gloves or masks mandatory, Hand sanitiser is available and freedom of choice given to it's usage.

For the most part, I would expect people to exercise common sense.

Screenshot_20200624-152142_Facebook.jpgDue to shitty  red tape and a fair amount of bullshit. I can't open technically until I get a trading certificate from my landlords SW Railway. They have confirmed all my paperwork was correct and in order on Monday 15th. 

    So I thought , bollocks to it, and opened on wed 17th. apparently my certificate is due imminently.

The downside of being on a train station.

The upside is the massive customer flow. See picture.

Mike.

It takes time and sadly might take very long time until we back to previous normality. 

One fact we should all know, even if streets get busier , it does't mean people coming to the shops and spending money. 

I am based on a high street which is busy most of the day , but people barely going into the shops... 

People start prioritising what they buy and only spend on goods and services they real need not what they want ! 

Good luck everyone ...

We’ve been paying real close attention to local Facebook groups that amount of people who give the “where can I get” questions and although no end recommend other businesses we always try to engage at least one person involved in the topic and mention a couple of things we do because you get no end of people reading it all, we’ve picked up loads of work in the past few weeks by being on the money. But we’ve also got my Sons searching for appropriate posts to comment on too.

ive been flat out since reopening. It’s been incredible

Drove through St. Johns last night Alan, it's ridiculous, Why didn't they action the work over the last 3 months when roads were deserted?

Our local councillor tried to get the highways dept just to postpone it for a couple of months but having none of it...we got it for 22 weeks.i took less than £30 today.
