COVID-19 Update 24/03/2020


Following the announcement from the Prime Minister on Monday 23rd March, we have taken the decision to temporarily close the showroom and transport department until government restrictions have been lifted. Arranged deliveries for this coming week are now postponed. We are contacting customers as soon as we can who had arranged deliveries for this to notify them.

These are unprecedented steps for us to take. We have been able to keep our doors open to the public for 69 years since 1951. However, the safety of our customer, staff and the general public are of the upmost importance.

You are welcome to shop online with our website, our team will be able to process your order for you. We have a selection of products available for quick delivery direct from suppliers for people who require items immediately. View Items These are delivered by one person, and will be dropped boxed at your doorstep.

The restrictions put in place by the Government are designed to reduce the rate of infection . This is why we feel it is important to follow the stay at home policy for non essential deliveries and retail.

The majority of our deliveries require a two man delivery. We would not be able to follow the social distancing rule on our van and a doorstep delivery would be inappropriate for our furniture and customers. Therefore we have taken the difficult decisions to halt all deliveries and are asking our staff to remain at home, and to follow the rules set out by the Government.

Once the restrictions are lifted we will be calling our customers to arrange deliveries, with priority for customers who had deliveries postponed this week.


You have supported us during our 69 years in business, and we want support you during these difficult times. If you have no support network please get in touch 01633 214 241 or sales@georgestreet.co.uk, and we will do our utmost to help.


We wish you good health to you and your families during these uncertain times and we look forward to welcoming you back in store in the near future.


Our prayers are with you and your families.

Dear valued customers

With all the information circulating currently about COVID-19 and the significant effect this is having across the UK we wanted to give you an update on our current situation.

We are still open for business. Our store remains open and we are still delivering to our customers.

Our showroom is now open Monday – Saturday, 9am until 5:30pm.

We have taken all the necessary precautionary measures advised by government to maintain a safe and healthy workplace environment where possible, and we remain vigilant on a daily basis. Allow us to re-assure you that all staff members are taking extra precautions in store. Frequent hand washing throughout the day and hand sanitizers are being used after every customer interaction. Customers are being asked to use designated hand sanitizers upon entrance to the store.

We have a very large, spacious store. The sales team are allowing customers to browse freely and at a distance. In addition to this we are currently limiting the amount of customers in store at any time in order that we can maintain an environment where safety is paramount.

With 3 floors of sofas, furniture, carpets & beds, we have items you can have immediately and to order. Many of our suppliers are UK based and are ready to make goods and deliver them to us in a timely manner.

Our website is fully operational, stocked with thousands of products to browse for inspiration. Should you wish, you can call us for some advice and purchase over the telephone.
