​Shop update July 2020 – Covid-19 Pandemic

Posted by Pete on 13th Jul 2020

Hi everyone, I am getting a lot of calls and messages from customers asking when is SkillToyz going to open? The short answer is not yet; perhaps in August or September if it is safe for me to do so.

I am a sole trader and presently work alone. In order to reopen SkillToyz I need to go to the Post Office to post orders. I cannot do this safely due to Covid.

Let me explain my situation: due to my heart transplant I am extremely vulnerable to severe illness from Covid-19. For the past 4 months I have been shielding. I will continue to shield until I believe it is safe to stop. Shielding means I do not go out (except to exercise) and must strictly observe social distancing.

I was extremely lucky to get a heart transplant: it saved my life, and I will do everything I can to protect my Gift of Life.

So I am sorry to continue to disappoint customers, but I hope you will all understand my position.

My thanks to you all, stay safe,


Pete
