Come on in: We’re Open!Katrina Rose Ellis
As lockdown eases across Scotland, our showroom doors are re-opening to the public. With a few new ways to experience retail in-store, find us in the heart of Old Town, continuing our traditional trade in these historic times.
Summer is off to a great start (by 2020 standards) as we were finally able to reopen our showroom doors to the public on Monday! There may be no Fringe this year, but the strength and spirit of our local communities has sailed many of us through unprecedented waters, the shore now on our horizon. After 3 long months of minimal operation behind locked down doors, our workshop can once again resume trade, crafting our handmade goods for our much valued customers.
What we’re doing to stay safe
As it always has been, the safety of our craftsmen, customers and colleagues is key.
The world of retail has been utterly transformed over recent months, so it’s perfectly understandable why stepping out and along the high street can seem overwhelming. Unlike the large retail giants, smaller independent shops, like the ones housed down our street, are already founded on personal customer service. This means we’ve only had to make mild introductions to our usual routine to ensure a safe reopening.
We are advising physical distancing and limiting the number of customers in the shop to 2 at any one time – although thankfully, our showroom is already nice and roomy, offering plenty of space for comfortable social distancing. We will have hand sanitiser, gloves and face masks available if required. The shop will be thoroughly cleaned prior to opening, and cleaned after every visit.
When we’ll be open
Our trading hours for the start of July are as follows:
Monday – Saturday
10am – 6pm
Appointments are also available to those who would prefer, please phone +44 (0) 131 557 3969 to book with a member of our team.
If all is well after a few weeks we aim to resume our usual Summer trading hours to include Sunday’s. Be sure to subscribe to our Newsletter at the bottom of the page to stay in the loop with all updates and exclusive offers direct from our world of leathercraft (or as it’s otherwise known, our workshop!).
And don’t forget, if you can’t make it to our actual showroom, we’re always open online. Browse our collection of handcrafted leathergoods on the virtual shelves of our website 24/7.
From the entire Mackenzie Team, THANK YOU and we hope to see you soon!
