BELL OF NORTHAMPTON – JUNE BLOG
We’ll meet again…in June!
There is no doubt that these last few months have been testing for us, not only as a business, but personally too.
It has been sad to see our showroom and café empty and not knowing when we will get to open our doors and see our lovely customers again.
Over the last few weeks, lots of work has been going on behind the scenes and we’re pleased to say that, along with our valued store concessions, we are re-opening on Tuesday 16th June.
To get ready for this, we have been doing everything in our power to make our premises as safe as possible for customers and staff and in line with Government guidance.
We have been purchasing PPE and sanitiser and putting the relevant signage and floor markers in place to remind customers to socially distance when shopping. There will also be glass screens in areas where we run customer presentations.
Our new opening hours will be Tuesday to Saturday 9am to 5pm (Closed Sundays & Mondays) and we will be working with a skeleton staff initially. Please follow our social media accounts on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for any updates relating to this. We regret that, at least to begin with, we will not be reopening Love Lunch @ Bell café in line with the Government guidance in relation to restaurants and bars.
In other good news, we have resumed customer installations and currently have good availability for Kitchen and Bathroom installations so now is a great time to order your dream Kitchen or Bathroom for installation this Summer.
All relevant personnel have undergone Safe Operating Procedures training to minimise the risk to staff and customers. They will also be wearing masks and other PPE and using hand sanitizer when working at customers’ homes. Customers will also be required to answer a few questions about whether they are exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms before a member of staff is sent to their home.
Lastly, we are pleased to announce that our newly extended Outdoor Leisure and BBQ Shop is now open. The new area has an unsurpassed selection of outdoor cooking appliances and sits conveniently next to our Calor gas department, which has been operating throughout the lockdown period offering an essential local gas collection and delivery service, in line with social distancing measures (for further information on our Calor gas services, call 01604 777511, email mailto:email@example.com or visit northantsgassupplies.co.uk).
We would like to say a huge thank you to our valued customers for their ongoing support. The ecommerce side of our business at www.abell.co.uk is doing very well – in fact we’ve had our best two months to date, with customers buying outdoor furniture and outdoor cooking appliances to enjoy their gardens during the lockdown! So, thank you for that. It means a lot.
We still have a wide range of Outdoor Living products available at https://abell.co.uk/outdoor-living-f23849678.htm, so please have a look online. If you fancy adding some excitement to your usual meals why not have a go at outdoor cooking with one of our outdoor cooking appliances? We have a fantastic range from outdoor pizza ovens to smokers, grills and barbecues available online at https://abell.co.uk/bbqs-and-pizza-ovens-f23850851.htm.
Once again, our sincerest thanks for your patience and loyalty. Please spread the word that we are re-opening on June 16th, and we look forward to seeing you again in store again very soon.
