As you are no doubt aware, the current situation with Coronavirus in the UK is quite serious and we want you to know that we are taking it seriously ourselves at JustPlay, so here's some information on the measures that we're taking at the store to assist in keeping yourselves and our staff safe.
As of a couple of weeks ago, we upped the general cleaning schedule in our store. Our staff are regularly wiping down all touchpoints in the store including the counter, till, shelves, and gaming tables with antibacterial wipes. The gaming mats and terrain are being sprayed between games with Dettol antibacterial sprays.
We've ordered new pedal bins for the store to replace our old flip-top bins and reduce the numbers of touchpoints in the shop. We have hand sanitizers readily available at the counter for you to use and will continue to do so for as long as we're able to keep getting it.
The bathrooms are being deep cleaned 2-3 times daily instead of once, and we've replaced our usual towels with blue roll towels for the duration of this situation.
We've also opened up the old kitchen as an additional hand wash area, where you can use our basins and soap to clean your hands as regularly as you require.
We'd ask that all customers avail them of the above facilities and follow the current guidance; wash your hands often, don't touch your face if you can help it, and cover your mouth when you cough or sneeze.
We would also ask that customers follow the Public Health England Stay-at-home Guidance in regards to self-isolation if you feel unwell.
Currently there is no advice that people need to avoid public places, however we will be monitoring the PHE advice for businesses closely and if we have to close the store to gaming fully or partially, we will do so for the safety of all of our customers. Also bear in mind that some games companies such as Wizards of the Coast are currently making provisions for upcoming events such as the Ikoria Prerelease to be played at home - please keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter for updates as they become available.
It's a very unusual and challenging time for most of us at the minute I'm sure you'll all agree - please look after yourselves and we hope to see you all soon!
If you're unable to get to the store, remember that we send all parcels by Royal Mail 24 which means they arrive next day - please take advantage of this service even if you're local, it's a very tough time for retail right now and we appreciate the custom during this period!
