Reopening FAQs

When will the store reopen?

We opened all of our stores, including Colchester, on 15th June 2020.

What are the opening hours of my store?

We have reopened with slightly reduced opening times. The revised hours are:

Mon to Sat: 10am - 5pm

Sunday: 10.30am - 4.30pm

Which entrance can I use?

To enter our Colchester store, please use the Main High Street entrance via the beauty department on the ground floor. If you are driving, you may access the store using the revolving doors at the rear of the store from the NCP Car Park. We have mapped out a clear one way journey through the store to keep you safe. We will also be monitoring the amount of people coming in and out to prevent our stores from becoming too crowded.

Will I be able to return items?

Yes, you’ll find our returns desk on the third floor at the furniture desk. Our returns policy will remain as 28 days for any items purchased from the store from the date of re-opening.

Are you doing furniture deliveries and delivery of large items?

Working with our delivery specialists, we are currently able to offer a delivery service to the room of your choice or, if you prefer, delivery to your doorstep. Due to COVID-19, our home deliveries will be carried out slightly differently to ensure the safety of yourselves and the delivery drivers. They will be provided with PPE and hand sanitiser whilst regular cleaning of the vans and equipment will be carried out. We would like to make sure that we are following the two metre social distancing measures and ask that customers stand outside their home whilst the delivery specialists are inside.
