Bringing People Together
I have heard from other people that the post office is closing early, and more importantly so is Boots the Chemist. Could the firms respond. I think if they are closing early they should have let the community know. Apparently Boots are closing at 4pm, that's ok if you are able to go over the bridge to find out and read the message on the door, but as I am not allowed out that's impossible.
I have ordered my monthly meds, if I can find someone to go for me to collect them (have asked that they be delivered) I really need to know the time they close. Word of mouth really isn't sufficient. We all know that everyone is under a lot of pressure, but we really do need to know when local shops and pharmacies are closing early, especially the chemist as my drugs keep me alive.
Boots in Priory Road are open 10-4, but I'm pretty sure Boots in Station Approach are still open until 5:30 - I dropped off my Dad's prescription there just as they were locking up at 5:30 on Monday. These are the times given on Boots website for these branches, too...
Janice - the number for Boots Station Approach is 020 8979 5559.
Thanks Matt, I do have their number but they always leave it on fax so you cannot get through. It was just that I was told they were closing at 4pm
Heavens there was no need for that. I was merely saying those that are shutting early to let the community know. I was not complaining at all that they are shutting early merely that, as I have been in total lockdown for over 3 weeks, ie I cannot go out my door, i didn't know what was open and when. I wish people would stop attacking me for no reason whatsoever. I did not see the BBC announcement, all I was suggesting is that they could have posted on here. I don't know you Jen but you seem to have something against me, maybe in these times one should be a little more tolerant. As I have said as I can't step outside my door (maybe you can) I would not know
I agree with you Janice, that was uncalled for. Communication is King. Surely it is not too difficult to have-accurate time of opening and closing on the web. My wife walked to the Chemist, only to find they had reduced their opening times. No big deal, but an unnecessary journey.
