Important Covid-19 Information for Customers
AWBS branches are now open to the public and our local delivery service is operating. Due to Covid-19 and Government guidelines, we have implemented measures and working practices to maintain social distancing and public safety, while providing as normal service as possible. You can read more about the measures we have taken below, if you have questions, please contact your local branch.
All AWBS branches are open to the public. Visitor numbers to branches will be restricted to allow staff and customers to maintain social distancing wherever possible. Hand sanitiser and personal protective equipment has been provided for staff. Gloves and facemasks will be used where social distancing cannot be effectively maintained. We have intensified our cleaning regime for all areas of our business, including buildings, vehicles, and machinery.
Perspex screens will be installed at our service counters and access will be limited to one customer at a time in the building. Customers are encouraged to view products in our outdoor display areas while maintaining social distancing but the numbers at any one time will be restricted to provide safe space for all.
At the present time, we are operating with a slightly reduced team across all our branches. While we are pleased to be operating at near to normal capacity, customers should expect slightly longer delivery lead times and we ask for patience when visiting our branches as we control visitor numbers to protect safety.
We reserve the right to refuse entry to our branches, and will ask individuals to leave, if we believe that they are not following social distancing and safety measures or if we feel that their conduct is putting customers and staff in danger.
