Q. How are The Classic Boutique looking after their staff during Covid-19?
We’ve reduced our staffing levels to the bare minimum and our new opening hours are now Monday to Friday 9am-5pm. All those employees who possibly can are working from home.

Our company continues to monitor the situation closely to ensure that we abide by any guidance received from the government and that we protect the health and wellbeing of our employees.

It certainly is, but with a reduced workforce. This ensures there is significantly more than the safe 2 metres distance between each member of staff. Additional measures have been introduced to further safeguard our workforce; these include:

All our warehouse staff and delivery couriers are fully informed of the precautionary safety measures in place to avoid the spread of COVID-19.
Q. If I am in self isolation how will the courier deliver my parcel?
All delivery couriers have been advised to ensure contact-free deliveries with customers, as far as possible. Having knocked on your door, they will then step aside to a safe distance while you retrieve your parcel. This will ensure your parcel is delivered securely.

No. Royal Mail will not be asking any customers to handle PDAs and will record the delivery location on their device.
