National jeweller, Beaverbrooks, has decided to close its website and warehouse operations until further notice.
The family-run jewellery retailer was one of the first multiples to close its stores for the safety of its staff and customers, and now it has gone one step further to protect the wellbeing of its people with the closure of its online operations.
Managing director, Anna Blackburn, shares: “It is with great sadness that we have made the difficult decision to close our website and warehouse operations until further notice.
“As a family owned business, the safety and wellbeing of our people is our utmost priority, and despite current government guidance for online retailers to continue normal operation, we need to do everything we can to protect our colleagues, their families and the wider community.”
Beaverbrooks says it will be working hard to fulfil any existing orders made before 3pm Friday 27 March.
From this point on, the company will be unable to take any news orders or refunds until further notice.
“As we all stay at home, adjust to our ‘new normal’ and get through this together, we still want to be there for you and we’d still love to hear from you,” Blackburn adds to her message to customers.
Blackburn encourages people to keep checking the company’s website, blog and social media channels in the coming weeks and share special moments as the business hopes to keep these active.
