Social Distancing Guidelines
We are absolutely delighted to be able to say that the Government has now given us the go-ahead to re-open Garden Centres from this Wednesday 13th May.
At Everton Nurseries we will open 7 days a week but with restricted opening hours: 10.00am – 4.30pm. This is to allow us to do the necessary watering & restocking when there are no customers present.
Even though we are so very pleased to be reopening we are doing this cautiously. Social distancing measures will be in place and would ask you to please adhere to these for both yours and our staff’s safety.
We are only allowing 45 customers in at any one time, with a maximum of 2 per household. We will not be allowing in family groups, under 18’s or dogs.
There will be a queuing system in place (the same as at supermarkets), but we have little idea of how many people will turn up and when, so you may have to be patient.
We would ask, certainly at this early stage, that you come in, purchase the items you require and restrict the browsing time we know you enjoy to allow others to come into the centre without having to queue for a long time.
Many of you like to come in and ask advice about which plant to put where, or in what soil and so on. Under normal circumstances our plants team are always happy to spend time with you to talk through your planting requirements. Please appreciate at least for now, this may not be possible to the extent it was before.
In store you will now see screens at the tills, markings on the floor indicating where you should queue and where to put your trolley for processing. Public areas have been cleaned, as have the trolley handles, chip & pin machines and areas around the till. There is also a sanitiser station at the entrance to the centre.
Camellias Restaurant will remain closed for the foreseeable future.
We look forward to welcoming you back and together we hope that we can make the best of this difficult times.
