Coronavirus - Frequently Asked Questions

Our number one priority is to make sure our customers and colleagues feel safe in store. No matter which ScS branch you’re visiting, we’re following the latest advice and guidance from the government as well as encouraging everyone in our stores to be mindful of others.

Distancing is no longer required across all of our locations, although the requirement to wear a face covering remains in place in Scotland and Wales. In England, we’re also still welcoming customers and ScS team members to wear a mask – please just ask one of our team if you’d prefer for a mask to be worn.

In addition to our 100 stores being open, you can still shop with us online. We're offering a live video service, so if you'd prefer to talk to us from home, one of our sales advisors can walk you around our showrooms at a time convenient to you.

Our friendly online sales advisors are ready and waiting, seven days a week, to help you find your perfect sofa, furniture or flooring.

Home safety with ScS



Visiting our stores in Scotland and Wales safely



I'm looking to place an order

Yes, all of our stores in England, Wales and Scotland are open.

We are also continuing to deliver furniture and flooring to our customers across England, Scotland and Wales. Our team will contact you directly when your order arrives into our distribution centre.
We are following enhanced cleaning regimes in all of our stores and hand sanitiser is available for customers and colleagues.

Whilst limits on the number of people in stores and distancing requirements have been relaxed in England, we're asking our teams and all of our customers to be respectful and mindful of others when visiting us.

Face coverings are no longer mandatory in England, and customers and colleagues are able to choose whether or not they wish to wear one. Should you prefer one of our store colleagues to wear a mask when they are assisting you, then they will be very happy to do so.

In Scotland and Wales mask wearing remains mandatory in retail stores and we ask that all customers continue to wear a face covering unless they are medically exempt from doing so..
- Yes indeed, we take the safety of both our customers and staff very seriously. We’ve been working closely with our suppliers across the globe to ensure we’re following public health guidance at every stage. And whilst the risk of spread is extremely low via transmission from item to item, we’ve made sure all of our warehouse staff and delivery teams are using protective masks, gloves and cleaning sanitisers. Our priority is to make sure all products are safe to be delivered.
- You don't have to book an appointment. To beat the queues, we'd always recommend making a booking. The times are flexible and are there to suit your schedule. Your personal specialist will be waiting at the allocated time slot and make sure you receive all the product information and demonstrations you might need on the day!
