Hancocks have made the decision to temporarily suspend operations at their 19 Hancock Cash & Carrys, taking affect from 1.00pm on the 29th March.
Statement from Hancocks:
“The safety for our colleagues, our customers, and suppliers has been at the forefront of our thinking and ultimately led to the decision we have made. We take great pride in being able to service our customers to the highest standards, from the specialist sweet shops and local village shops to large scale sweet businesses. However, as a nation we have to fight COVID19 together and responding to the advice of the government to restrict social contact and activity, we have decided this is the best way for us to do our part to support the UK through this.
For the next few days we will be focusing on supporting our customers to get stocked up, before we close our Cash and Carrys doors temporarily. We are welcoming and supporting our customers that want to visit the store, however, we ask that you please keep your distance from other customers and staff. At the till please wheel your trolley up and then stand back as the products are put through the till. We would encourage you to opt for our click and collect service, where you can place an order and pay and arrange a contactless pick up from the cash and carry nearest to you.
Our transactional website www.hancocks.co.uk will continue to operate offering you many thousands of products delivered to your door. As a temporary measure we will be lowering the minimum spend to £35 and also lowering the Free Delivery threshold to £250 to help support your business through these unprecedented times. If you are not already registered to shop online then we can support you through this process just contact us via email: firstname.lastname@example.org”
