With the safety of staff paramount, the Birmingham Jewellery Quarter-based business said it will continue to operate in a socially distanced way and will adapt its practices to support retailers, whether through online sales or by posting finished items direct to consumers or business owners at their home address.
The business’ trade counter will also remain open, with stringent rules in place including the use of face masks and hand sanitizer. Limited amounts of customers will be allowed into the showroom at any one time.
During the first Coronavirus lockdown earlier this year, Hockley Mint closed its factory on March 27th in line with official Government guidance. Adhering to strict safety guidelines and government instructions, the business reopened in April.
Customers who wish to change the delivery address of their orders can do so simply by ringing the Hockley Mint offices.
Gary Wroe, managing director at Hockley Mint, said:
“This is an unprecedented time for bricks-and-mortar retailers and our priority over the next four weeks will be assisting our retail partners in whatever way we can. Many of our customers will transition completely online and begin to complete the bespoke process in a digital setting. We can aid this by sending finished items directly to the end consumer or to retailers at their home addresses.
Ensuring a steady flow of business for the entire jewellery sector, despite the current challenges, will be a team effort and will require all of us to play our parts. Here at Hockley Mint, we are ready to do our bit.”
