To Our Customers and Suppliers

After the announcement by the UK Government that we could finally return from COVID-19 hibernation as from Saturday 4th July, we eagerly got our tape measures out and started to plan for the days ahead. It soon became clear that there was more to this than just swinging our doors open and for fewer customers. As a result we have decided to take more time to assess our longer term plans without the panic and see how the rest of the industry does over the first few weeks of July. Watch this page for more updates over the coming weeks.

Sending our best wishes to you all,
James, Gennaro, Amina and the Origins Team
