Open longer for Christmas!

The kindly Mr Jenrick has announced that retailers are permitted to open longer hours without the lengthy application process. Tomorrow our area exits the England Lockdown 2, into Tier 2 instead. I am here to let you know where that leaves Christmas shopping with The Belt Makers & Friends!


From TOMORROW (Weds 2nd December) at 10am, we… are… OPEN!!

All our COVID-secure measures will be in place, both for you to shop in comfort and safety, and for the safety of our staff.

  • Hands: Everyone will be asked to apply the supplied hand sanitiser at the door
  • Face: Face coverings are mandatory (medical exemptions apply)
  • Space: We have 2m markings throughout the store and we may restrict numbers in store if required

New December arrangements

We are delighted to announce new shopping hours for December! We will be opening our door for a little longer this year, to allow for socially distanced browsing, over longer shopping days.

Thursday is traditionally late night shopping so we will keep our door open to all, until 7pm every Thursday, from now until Christmas.

We are introducing personal shopping appointment slots for Friday and Saturday evenings. On Fridays you can book appointments between 5 and 8pm and on Saturdays you can book between 5 and 7pm.

We will also open Sundays, from 11am-4pm AND Mondays, from 10am-5pm.

See you soon!
