The announcement today, Monday 23rd March, from the Prime Minister has given some clear instructions that relate directly to St Breward Stores. Boris Johnson has instructed everyone to ONLY leave home for:
* one form of exercise a day
* any medical need
* Travelling to and from work
Guidance from The Post Office this evening identified Postmasters and Post Office staff as key workers. Therefore, St Breward Stores & Post Office will still be open but on reduced hours.
Our new opening hours are:
Monday – Saturday: 7:30am – 12:00 noon Sunday: 9am – 12 noon
Our Mobile Post Office will continue with its existing schedule with no change – this is still classed as an essential service.
As the Prime Minister has prohibited gatherings in public of more than two people who do not live together, we therefore ask for a ‘one in, one out’ policy in both the shop and the Mobile Post Office. This not only ensures that you keep yourself other customers safe, but also our staff.
DELIVERIES: As some of you may have heard, Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery closed today, Monday 23rd March, until further notice. This means there are no bread and cake deliveries at present. We are looking urgently into other suppliers who may be able to supply us.
We are not sure until tomorrow (at least) about newspaper deliveries, milk deliveries, meat deliveries and fruit / vegetables. We will be contacting all of our suppliers tomorrow and will update you all shortly.
With regards to our main supplier (Bookers), who supply many of our ambient and chilled produce, these are very limited at the moment therefore we cannot guarantee what is in the shop, but please be assured we are doing our very best to keep the shop stocked with all of the essentials.
Thank you for your co-operation and understanding. Please stay safe. Please pass this information onto any elderly or vulnerable who may not have access to the website, Facebook or emails
