As the situation we’re all in changes so rapidly, we’ve had to adapt and modify our own business model accordingly. As the advice from government is for us all, to as best as possible, stay home and only leave the house if it’s absolutely necessary, we feel it’s only right, and in the best interests of everybody in our community, and for our own safety that we keep the walk in retail side of The Tuppenny closed in a “Lock-Out”, despite the categorisation of off-licences as an “essential service”. So, for the time being, The Tuppenny is a delivery only service (which we have nicknamed “Deliverbrew”).
We are continuing to offer this delivery only service to ensure you have all the essentials you need to survive an extended period home schooling / stuck with your hormonal teenagers / unable to escape the partner you suddenly don’t get on with. But, we are taking things on a day to day basis as advice changes, and are taking as many precautions as possible.
We are only going to be delivering on a Monday, Wednesday and Friday, with orders needing to be with us by 6pm the day before. Every order needs to be made via our new webshop to keep things clearer and more secure (sorry, no more Facebook or Telephone orders). All product is being disinfected as it is packed and staff will be freshly gloved as they pack and for each delivery. We will leave the delivery on your doorstep, knock and back away severl metres to make sure you are home to receive it (although, where else are you going to be?) We think we will be safer than getting your groceries via supermarket home delivery.
Of course, as recommendations change, so will we.
Further news is also coming on the quiz and other things to entertain you as you while away the weeks behind closed doors. We’ve got your backs folks (from a safe distance of course…)
Stay safe and much love,
