Dear Customers,

In light of the unprecedented circumstances following the outbreak of COVID-19, we want to provide you with an update on the precautionary measures we are putting in place to protect our staff and customers.


Our Course of Action

Our existing hygiene and cleanliness standards have increased in line with government recommendations. This includes frequently sanitising high-touch areas such as counters, door handles, EFTPOS machine and doorbell.

We encourage customers to use contactless payment where possible. Our staff have increased the frequency of washing their hands and using alcohol based rubs. Staff are encouraged to practice social distancing between each other and are supported to stay home if they feel unwell for any reason.

If you have recently travelled overseas, or experiencing flu, cold or cough symptoms, we ask as a courtesy to please inform our staff. Alternatively, we encourage you to shop via our online catalogue and select Home Delivery to minimise movement in the community.

For the most up to date health advice, we encourage you to refer to the World Health Organisation ( and Australian Government Department of Health (
