Colmans is not accepting cash payments.

In a statement on its website the Colmans team said: “We’ve been missing you and judging by all the lovely messages we’ve received, many of our customers are missing us too.

“Following government guidelines, we are offering an online home delivery and click & collect service from our Ocean Road branch ‪starting Thursday, May 14, with the online order system going live on Monday, May 11 to preorder a time slot for the coming week.

“As this is the first stage of a phased reopening, there will just be the four of us working in the shop.

“Because of this - and to enable us to adhere to the strictest safety standards - there are a limited number of home delivery and click and collect slots available.

“Thank you for your continued support.
