A statement from the Susie Watson Designs team:
In light of the escalating situation surrounding COVID-19, Susie Watson Designs have been carefully monitoring government advice, with particular regard to the planned opening of our Knutsford store.
As always, ensuring the well-being of our extended community of staff, customers and partners remains our number one priority.
We have taken the difficult and disappointing decision to postpone the long-awaited opening of our tenth store at the end of the March.
We are very disappointed but feel sure our customers will understand the need to prioritise health and safety in these unprecedented times.
We will look to deliver a new date for the opening of Susie Watson Designs, Knutsford, as soon as possible.
Regular updates regarding a new opening date will be posted on our website and social media platforms.
Whilst we understand that this postponement will cause disappointment, our Knutsford team of staff and interior designers will be available from end of March, to provide consultations and take orders over the phone.
Customers are encouraged to take advantage of our Susie Watson Designs hotline on 0344 980 8185, until the shop can be opened.
Orders can be placed online at www.susiewatsondesigns.co.uk.
Our warehousing and delivery teams are taking all the necessary precautions to control infection risk across our supply chains.
We continue to use DPD to fulfil all our deliveries; smaller parcels can always be left outside the door or in a safe space and delivery drivers wear gloves when delivering larger items.
Our social media feeds will release regular updates on the planned opening of this store. For all further press enquiries, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
