PLEASE KEEP A SAFE DISTANCE

The social distancing rule has been lifted, so we’ll no longer restrict the number of customers in our shops, and you won’t see marshals at our entrances. We’d encourage you to continue keeping a safe distance where you can, though – and you may prefer to shop earlier in the morning or later in the evening, when it’s quieter.
