Both stores are now starting to fill up, which is great to see, freezers are well stocked and a good amount dry goods are back in stock, including many new and exciting products! HOWEVER, we are working very hard on continuing to bring our full range back.
We were due 2 deliveries from Ireland this week, one on the 12/3/21, and another on the 13/3/21, both including chilled and frozen; unfortunately these have been delayed due to the bad weather, we are not sure when they will arrive, but it will most likely be the 15th or 16th.

 

We will update you when we have more information.

 
So bear with us whilst we weather this storm (quite literally!)
 

GREAT NEWS! (6/3/2021)

IMPORTANT UPDATE! 17/2/2021:

We have still not received any deliveries from the UK, and our UK delivery is currently held at customs.
Furthermore, due to bad weather conditions in Ireland, our Irish order was not able to be loaded on the boat when it should of been, and will now be shipped on the next available boat.
As a result of this BOTH stores will now be closing tonight (17/2/21) at 7pm, and they will reopen next Friday (26/2/21) at 10am.
Having the stores closed until Friday will allow our staff to get any incoming stock out and the stores looking good ready for 10am on Friday.
We apologies for the inconvenience, and hope to see you in stores very soon!

2. These deliveries will include chilled, frozen and grocery items.
3. To start with, our range of products will be slightly reduced, but week by week our product range will continue to increase back to normal.
4. Whilst we become accustomed to the new customs regulations (pun intended), certain additional services that we offer will be temporarily stopped, these services include :
a. UK postal service
b. Magazine reserves
c. Argos orders
d. Girl Guiding orders
e. Bed orders
5. We will continue to bring the very best of British products, but we ask for your patience whilst we transition to the new normal, and the new normal looks bright!
We did anticipate these delays at the start of the year, so at the end of 2020 we received a huge delivery of ambient grocery products to allow for this, it was so big in fact we are still restocking the shelves with the end of 2020 delivery.
