Temporary Gaming Facilities Closure

Ian O'Brien

Hi Everybody,

Due to the new rules that came into effect in Liverpool in the early hours this morning, JustPlay's gaming tables are now temporarily closed and all in-store play and events are cancelled. Opening hours will be updated to reflect this. The store is still open for business as usual, serving all of your gaming and hobby needs!

Whilst Liverpool Council's Website states that Covid-secure venues (which as anyone who has visited the store will know, we are, and have been since) are exempt from the new rules, the government website on new Liverpool rules which were published with very short notice lastnight make no such exemption. Therefore, due to the large fines for businesses that break the rules, we have no option but to close our tables whilst we seek further information on this confusing guidance.

Any in-store event that you've paid for which is affected by this will be transferrable or refundable as you prefer. Contact us at your leisure to get this sorted. There's no time limit on this, though, so feel free to just ask to knock it off your next purchase or a future event entry at the time if you prefer!

We hope that you continue to support us and shop with us, even though you're unable to game with us right now. We lose a significant amount of our custom when we're not able to open for gaming, so we'd love you to continue shopping as you normally would, it would help us out a lot!

Same-day Delivery suspended - Royal Mail shipping as normal!

Ian O'Brien

Hi Everybody,

Just a quick update from us today - unfortunately due to the volume of home delivery requests dropping right off, combined with our skeleton staff, we're temporarily suspending our same-day delivery service until further notice.

It continues to be a very tough time to be a retail store, impacted significantly by the fact that some of our main suppliers are currently closed and so we're not able to get a lot of stock. This has in turn meant that our orders have slowed to a crawl. We're hoping that our distributors are currently working on their covid19 operating plans and will be reopening when it's safe to do so, and hopefully at that point there'll be enough demand for us to begin same-day deliveries again.

In the meantime, we are still shipping via Royal Mail with our usual speedy service. We've still got great stocks of Hobby ProductsCard Games, Board Games, and Roleplaying Games and we're still getting restocks of most of these. Asmodee/Esdevium are still trickling out new releases, Battlefront (Flames of War) are still open, as well as many other distributors so there is still plenty to choose from - and maybe now is a good time to try a different genre that you've not tried before!

With your ongoing support, we'll keep going through this crisis. Hopefully orders pick up again soon. Remember, if there's nothing that you want right now, you can pick up a digital gift voucher. If you're of a mind to, please recommend us to your friends if they're looking for something that we stock!


Thanks for reading,

Team JustPlay
