By Emily Peagram 26 Mar 2020
Knitting brand King Cole has decided to remain open in order to provide customers with all of their crafting needs during the UK’s lock down period. The company released the following statement:
“We Are Open! We are fully committed to ensuring the safety of our workforce and our customers. Therefore we are adhering with the government’s advice on social distancing. This means that we have a reduced number of staff in head office.
“At this current time our head office remains open. Our sales team are processing your orders and our warehouse staff are packaging and posting your favourite yarn ranges.
“We are doing our utmost to support Local Yarn Shops at this time. Having spoken to a number of ingenious stockists, it is great to hear of so many innovative ideas of ensuring the public still have access to their favourite yarns.
“Please respect the government’s advice on social distancing and please don’t endanger yourself or others.”
King Cole are ramping up their virtual offerings for customers, including a virtual shop tour and personal shopping video calls where consumers can connect with an expert. To find out more go to www.kingcole.com
