Lockdown 2.0 – All the details
November 20, 2020
Following the announcement from the Scottish Government, we are temporarily closing the shop after Friday 20th November for 3 weeks. While the shop may not be open, we are still very much open online! The busy Spirito elves are working away behind the scenes to bring you as much as possible from the shop to our online store, giving you plenty of choice as we approach Christmas.
You can choose to have your items delivered through the post, or you can opt to ‘click & collect’ from the shop for free. Once you have placed your order, you will be notified once it has been posted or is ready for collection. If you have chosen to ‘click & collect’ then you can come to the shop during our reduced opening hours (Monday – Friday 10am – 3pm, Saturday 10am – 4pm or Sunday 12 – 4pm). Please stand back from the door to let us answer, and we will fetch your items for you. Please note that we cannot let any customers into the shop, and we can’t take payments for items at the door of the shop.
Thank you for your understanding throughout all of this, and for your ongoing support – it means the world to us! If you have any questions, please get in touch and we will do our best to help.
