OFFICE, PRODUCTION, DELIVERIES ALL OPERATIONAL. 

 

As per government guidelines the shop is now closed to the public.

Deliveries are as normal, with a 24-48 hour lead time.

The last day for collections will be Tuesday 31st March. From April 1st, we will be operating deliveries only. 

 

1. FREE DELIVERY TO ALL LOCAL ADDRESSES

If you are within 10 miles of Stroud, we are offering FREE delivery on any order. Typically we are able to deliver next day for orders placed by 4pm, but this may be delayed due to demand and/or for out of stock products. 

If you are self-isolating please use this option. Call us to place your order and we can work out all of the details on the phone. 

2. CALL AND COLLECT

Our call and collect service will cease on Wednesday 1st April. From this point, all existing and new orders will be delivery only. The last day for collections is Tuesday 31st March. This is to ensure customers are not making unnecessary trips. 

If you are worried about visiting a public place, we have a call and collect system in place. Place your order with us on the phone and we will tell you when it will be ready. (this may be a couple of hours sometimes). Drive to our shop, park outside and honk your horn - a member of staff will come out to your vehicle to take your name, and then will go and get your order. If nobody comes out immediately it will just mean they are indisposed - please honk again and/or call us and someone will be able to help as soon as possible.
