For those customers who visit our showrooms, we encourage you to book an appointment in advance to ensure that physical distancing guidelines are met. If the showroom has reached capacity, you will be asked to wait outside until space permits or book an appointment for another time/date. We kindly ask that you bring your own face-covering and limit your party to two people and children are kept at home.
