Boormans family run, traditional jewellers and quality gift shop in Knaphill High Street is OPEN!
The Knaphillian is delighted to hear that in line with government advice and the easing of Covid-19 lockdown measures, Boormans Jewellers and Gift Shop has reopened today (15th June, 2020).
Manager Amanda Fairless told us this morning: “We have been open for an hour and a half and we have already changed 15 watch batteries, put on 3 new watch straps, had 5 repairs collected and booked in another 3 repairs. We are busy, busy, busy and very very happy to be back!!!”
Boormans offer a full repair service for jewellery, clocks and watches, watch battery and strap replacement and valuations have been working over the last few weeks on safety measures to keep staff and customers safe for their reopening.
We asked Amanda how they managed during lockdown:
“Over the last couple of weeks we have delivered some clock and jewellery repairs back to customers and delivered a birthday present. We have been spending our time sorting out one of the workshops to make it easier for us to get repairs done now we are open again”.
What measures are in place in the shop for returning customers?
“We have been working hard to put new safety measures in place in the shop to keep our staff and customers safe. We have put up counter screens, are only allowing two customers in the shops at one time and have set up a line on the floor 2m from where we are, behind the counter. We are also reminding customers to stay 2m apart from each other.
“We are also providing hand sanitizer on entering the shop which we would ask customers to use and have a one-way system around the shop.
“On entering the shop, we ask you to stay behind the line to tell us what you need. We will then sort it out and move away from the counter when you go to pay.”
“We will still be offering a while-you-wait service for watch battery and strap replacements, but if we are busy we may ask you to pop out for a walk while we sort out your watch so we don’t have too many people in the shop.
“Our watch, jewellery and clock workshops have also re-opened so we can continue to help you with any repairs you may have. We also have thermometer batteries in stock.”
Amanda adds: “We are looking forward to seeing you very soon. Stay safe.”
Boormans are operating temporary opening hours initially:
10am – 4pm every day apart from Wednesdays and Sundays when the shop will be closed all day.
