Break shops to re-open on 15 June

At Break we have been hit significantly by the Coronavirus outbreak through the closure of our shops during the lockdown period, cancellation of fundraising activities and postponement of our world class art trail GoGoDiscover.

 Despite this we have been working tirelessly to get our shops open in-line with Government advice and include a number of features to get them ‘Covid-secure’. These features will assure all supporters, volunteers and staff by keeping them safe:

 General features

  • We will limit the number of customers within each shop at any time.
    • once the limit is reached a one-in, one-out procedure will apply.
  • Hand sanitiser will be available to you on entry and exit.
  • We have decluttered to increase floor-space and make social distancing easier.
  • Lunchtime closures will take place to enable sanitisation.

 Shoppers only

  • Perspex screen partition at the pay area to keep customers and staff safe.
  • Payment zone for customers to stand in prior to payment and ensure a 2m distance.
  • Contactless payment is preferred and will be actively encouraged.
  • No changing room facilities to avoid contamination.

 Donators only

  • Donations will only be accepted between 9-10 and 4-5pm each day.
  • All donations will be quarantined for 72 hours minimum.

 Lesley Leigh, Break’s Retail Business Manager said: “We’ve made a lot of changes to how our shops will operate to create a safe donation and shopping experience and are really excited to be welcoming back our loyal supporters.”

 We are hoping the reopening will prove to be a fantastic success and create a springboard to reopen the rest of our remaining shops.
