Letter from Dave at Schools In
Firstly, I hope that you, and everyone associated with your schools and families are staying safe during this rapid spread of coronavirus.
Since the Prime Ministerâ€™s announcement of a second national lockdown, we have been seeking advice on whether or not we can continue to trade out of our retail stores. We have now had confirmation that although schools are to remain open, as a school uniform retailer, we are NOT classed as an â€œessentialâ€Â retail store. Therefore, as of Thursday 5th November, our 3 retail stores in Meir, Stone and Nantwich will unfortunately be closed. If allowed, we will be re-opening on the 2nd December.
We are very mindful of the fact that some pupils may still require uniform during this period so our website www.schoolsinuniform.co.uk will remain open for orders. Orders will be processed by a member of staff every Monday and delivery will be between 7 and 10 working days from processing date. So for example an order placed on Tuesday 10th November will be processed on Monday 16th November with delivery within 7-10 working days of the 16th. We will inform customers of any potential delays if they should occur.
Throughout the lockdown period we will be offering a 10% discount on all orders placed online when using code LOCKDOWN10. If you wish to send this code out to your parents, you are welcome to do so and we will be adding it to our social media pages and website.
We can assure you that although we are not able to open our stores, we are working together to maintain our business. We are in the process of investing heavily into a new EPOS system which will allow us to view, maintain and react to stock variations quickly whilst still offering great value and service to your parents. We will be using this lockdown period to integrate the new systems so hopefully when we come out of lockdown we will be in a strong position moving forward.
If you need any more information in the meantime, please do not hesitate to contact me on my mobile â€“ 07973 441209.
