In the event we need to close on one of our usual open days (due to an exhibition etc) we will gve as much prior notice as possible on this site, in our windows, on twitter, facebook and instagram.
Saturday 7 July 2018: Open 10am - 3pm (i.e. we close 2 hours early). This is not to watch the football, but is because we expect it to be very quiet in our shop after 3pm. On saturday mornings I have to have the dog with me and will usually either find someone to walk him home at lunchtime or close 1-2pm myself to get him back. It would be crazy to close 1-2pm this Saturday as I expect plenty of people out and about before the England game and Charivari, so it should be a busy hour. Best to come in minus dog at 10am and close at 3pm (longest I can leave him, around 6 hours inc there and back, without him destroying things). He can't be in the shop all day as is too much of a distraction/troublemaker!
