To assist us in complying with the current restrictions if you are visiting us, we ask that you please observe the following:

  • There are density limits for inside spaces that we need to observe. Please wait in the assigned outdoor undercover area, and keep 1.5 metres apart at all times.
  • The restrictions mean that we can only assist a very limited number of customers at any time. We anticipate that this will cause delays and we thank you for your patience. 
  • If it is possible for you to place your booklist order online for Click and Collect or Home Delivery we highly recommend that you do so as this will avoid wait times. If you do need assistance placing your order you can come in and we will assist you but please note there may be a longer wait time than usual.
