 REOPENING STATEMENT

Opening date - Monday 15 June

We will be open from Monday to Saturday: 10am to 5pm
Sunday 11am - 4pm (AS OF 13TH SEPTEMBER 2020.)
 
PLEASE REMEMBER TO WEAR YOUR FACE COVERING. THANK YOU. 

A limited number of people will be allowed in the shop at any one time to browse the bookshop (both floors), art shop or art gallery. A member of staff will be near the door, so when you arrive at the shop, please ask if it is OK to come in.  

Entry to the shop will ONLY be allowed if you either use the hand sanitiser available at the front door, or put on a new pair of gloves (supplied by us). These requirements are unconditional as they are the only way for us to allow safe browsing, of any sort, anywhere in the shop. 

The shop has screens at the counters, and floor markings to indicate the 2m gap for 'social distancing'. The staff will be taking your, and our, safety very seriously and we will ensure that every care is taken to ensure that everyone complies with these measures. We may well be ‘polite but firm’ is what I am trying to say, politely. 

If you wish to order or reserve a book or art materials then please call us on 01672 512071 or email us on info@whitehorsebooks.co.uk. We can take payment over the phone if you wish. When you come to collect your orders we will be happy to bring them to the front of the shop if you do not wish to come inside. 

If you would like us to deliver anything to you then please ask. We will be happy to deliver locally free of charge, as far as possible, or post anything anywhere in the UK - not free of charge but at very reasonable rates.

Thank you for your support whilst the shop has been closed. We're very much looking forward to seeing everyone from Monday.
