Stores within garden centres will reopen on Friday 28th May

We are pleased to advise that all of our sites based within garden centres will be reopening from 9am on Friday 29th May for all of your fishkeeping needs 🐠 Our sites within Dobbies Garden Centres will be open from 9am - 5pm daily which includes: Aberdeen, Ayr, Braehead, Dundee, Dunfermline, Livingston, Melville, Perth, Sandyholm & Stirling. Fishkeeper Inverness will be open inside Simpsons Garden Centre from 9am - 6pm daily. Fishkeeper Coatbridge is already open for trade via its new dedicated entrance area, however unfortunately due to access issues Fishkeeper Leith remains closed for now. We have implemented new measures to ensure the safety of both our customers and our staff. We ask for all of our customers to please be aware of these measures and to make allowances for the changes when shopping with us. As in many other shops, customer numbers within our stores will be limited and to allow for this there will be a spaced queuing area at or near our entrances in addition to a queuing area at the entrance to the garden centre. Customers will then be advised by a member of staff when they are allowed to enter the store. To assist with the limiting of customer numbers we ask for you to shop individually where possible. It is important that customers have an idea of the products that they wish to buy before arriving, prolonged browsing within the store will hold up the flow of customers and mean that customers are in queues for a lot longer than they need to be. Please telephone first to make sure your desired items are in stock before making an unnecessary journey. We can also prepare orders over the telephone for collection. If you are bringing in water barrels for filling please ensure that these are thoroughly sanitised and rinsed of chemicals beforehand. Our stores will have spacing and navigation markers and signs to aid customers in finding the products that they are looking for and to aid with social distancing. The till areas will have spaced queuing, as well as screens for the protection of staff and customers alike. We ask that customers pay by card if possible and our contactless limit has been increased to £45. Please be responsible and respectful to both our staff and other customers, these are difficult times that can be frustrating but we are all in this together and only by working together can we reopen with safe and relatively stress free conditions. Thank you from all of us at Fishkeeper Scotland 🙂 🐠
