Our response to Covid-19

As the Leitrim Design House opens its doors to the public, we would like to extend a very warm welcome to everyone; to all our customers, makers and friends. Also sincere thanks to all of you who have purchased from our online shop and supported us on social media over the past few months of lockdown.

We wanted to share an update on the measures we have put in place to keep our staff and visitors safe. We will continue to make changes, using updates in government advice to inform daily decision making. The wellbeing of our team and our customers remains our number one priority.

Opening Hours.

We re-open Thursday July 16th and have created a safe shopping environment for both our staff and you, our visitors. Perspex is installed at the counter. Hand sanitiser is available at a number of hand sanitising stations, in the Dock Foyer, at the entrance to the Leitrim Design House and at various points around the shop, and we would like you to take the time to use this as you enter and circulate. Please also take time to sanitise your hands before touching anything within the shop and don’t hesitate to ask our staff for help. We will do our utmost to assist you when you visit.

We can allow 4 people in the shop at one time or a single family group of five. We would be grateful if you can follow the 2m social distancing etiquette that has now become a way of life for us. Floor marking are in place to help you adhere to this.

We have implemented enhanced cleaning schedules, ensuring that all touch surfaces are cleaned and disinfected regularlyand have reduced our operational days to minimise the density of staff on site at any one time.
