There have been some changes to our store opening hours at Level 2. Check here for your opening hours at your nearest store.
This is how our fulfilment centre teams are staying safe:
- Regular washing of hands, including before and after each break
- Regular sanitising of hands, including every time staff enter the packing area
- Social distancing with a minimum 2-metre separation
- Use of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for packers and drivers
- Minimum 15-minute breaks between shifts and split breaks for all staff to ensure social distancing is adhered to
- All work areas cleaned and surfaces sanitised between shifts
- Only two entry points onto the site per shift, where anyone must use hand sanitiser on entry
- No external visitors on site
Stores offering Click & Collect will:
- Practise safe distancing at Click & Collect touchpoints. We will also have barriers, signage and other equipment to ensure social distancing
- Ensure surfaces are wiped down each time a transaction has been completed
- Provide wipes and a disposal bin for wipes used by customers and team members
- Ensure team members use gloves and face masks in case two or more people are needed to lift your package. As soon as lifting is completed, the masks and gloves will be disposed of safely and handwashing hygiene will be completed.
In order to maintain social distancing, we are limiting the number of customers in store at any one time. In most stores, a safe distance of 2 metres is required, both inside the stores and in queues outside. In some stores, we are using contact tracing which means you can shop within a 1-metre distance of other customers or staff. In case we are unable to maintain this distance, our Passionate Experts will use appropriate PPE.
You will only have to queue if the number of people in a store at any one time is above the permissible limit. This limit is different for each store based on its size and will be strictly monitored by a Passionate Expert at the store entrance. When the limit is reached, you will be admitted on a one-out one-in basis and therefore might have to join a queue. Please maintain a safe distance of 2 metres while doing so.
Besides regular wiping down and cleaning, there are hand sanitiser stations in stores that you can use.
In some of our smaller stores, we ask you for contact tracing details like first names and surnames, a phone number and an email address. This enables you to shop within 1 metre from other customers. This information is a government Alert Level 2 requirement and you will not be allowed to enter the store without providing it.
Our stores are open in line with government guidelines for Alert Level 2 and our Passionate Experts are following safe distancing and hygiene protocols in line with these guidelines.
While in Alert Level 2, you need to ask a Passionate Expert for support if you would like to try certain items such as headphones or smart watches. The items are sanitised by the staff after every trial.
Yes, you can. However, you will need to pack them yourself and maintain a 2-metre distance from the Passionate Expert at the checkout counter.

- Make hand sanitiser stations available, for both you and our Passionate Experts
- Have signs about safety
- Have Passionate Experts wear masks and gloves when the task they are undertaking requires it; some may choose to wear it at other times too, much like supermarkets
In case of a tech installation or service appointment at your house, we will ask you some safety questions like whether anyone in the house is unwell. On arrival and while working, the Passionate Expert will maintain a safe distance of 2 metres at all times. They may also use a disposable face mask and disposable gloves. At the end of the tech visit, the Passionate Expert will wipe down all surfaces before they leave the site.
