In these unprecendented times the wellbeing of staff and customers alike is paramount.

At 'lockdown levels' 3 & 4 if you need to order something from us, please do this on line or call your regional branch number. Our Regional Managers are your first point of contact at L3 & L4. You will find their details here.
We'll need to know what your order is for to ensure it falls under our mandate to supply. We'll then check we have the stock you need and confirm a delivery/ collection plan. It will be helpful to have a note about the urgency level of your requirement when you contact us.
