Great news everyone, we are ready and waiting to welcome you back to our stores. We have missed you!
From Monday the 15th of June, we will be re-opening the doors of a few select VPZ stores only!
The health and well-being of our staff and customers is of utmost importance to us which is why we have chosen to initially open just 45 of our stores to begin with.
As and when Scotland begins to ease lockdown measures, we will continue to re-open stores, in phases, across the UK. So if your local store is not on this initial list, please don’t worry! We will continue to keep you all updated and your local VPZ will be re-opening very soon.
Now that you know you can visit us again, let’s find out what's changed...
You might notice that your local VPZ store looks a little different than normal. To protect both our staff and customers, we have installed perspex screens in our stores at the till points and social distancing markers on the floor. We are asking customers to follow social distancing guidelines whilst in-store and limiting the number of people in store to a maximum of 2 people at any one time. For the benefit of both our staff and your own well-being, we ask you to please respect these measures that we have put in place and pay special attention to any notices on the doors or screens before entering.
Finally, before you get ready to pop down to your local VPZ, please take note that some of our opening hours may have changed. These temporary restricted opening hours are outlined below.
