AS Watson-owned retailer announces move to protect warehouse team
The Perfume Shop has announced it is temporarily suspending fulfilment of its website orders, in addition to closing its 231 stores (which shut on 22 March), to enable its warehouse team to follow UK government advice and stay at home.
Gill Smith, The Perfume Shop’s Managing Director, said: “Like everyone we are following government guidelines closely and feel we need to put our colleagues and their families first, and this means pausing delivery of online orders for the moment.
“In these uncertain times we remain positive and stand beside our people, loyal customers and community as we all work together to fight the spread of Covid-19.”
According to the retailer, customers will still be able to visit theperfumeshop.com to browse the range; find hints, tips and wellbeing advice; and even take part in live fragrance consultations.
The Perfume Shop said it is keeping in close contact with its 1,875 employees who will, as part of the AS Watson Group, be supported by the Group’s financial package for colleagues.
