Important notice regarding the coronavirus outbreak:


Due to 3 of our staff having to self isolate, 2 of which on government advice have to remain isolated for the next 12 weeks, along with the unprecedented increase in customers coming to our Shop and Post Office and the need to protect our remaining staff , we have taken the decision to change our opening times with immediate effect until further notice.

This we hope will allow us to continue providing a great service to all our customers during these extraordinary time

Could we please remind all our customers of the following whilst in the shop :

Please keep a safe distance from one another

Please bring and use your own sanitiser where possible

Please do not come to the shop if you are feeling ill, ask someone else to come instead

We have a strict policy of 2 items per product/product group until further notice

We are working vey hard to improve the availability of all our products , our wholesalers are experiencing supply issues with certain goods but this will improve shortly we hope, our local suppliers have been brilliant and are doing their best to meet our requirements for increased volumes , we continue to get daily deliveries of fresh bread, fruit & veg, eggs, our newspaper supplies have been increased from this week too.

We do hope you will support the changes we are making, your understanding is greatly appreciated.

Many thanks,

From everyone at Barley Post Office & Stores

P.S. Please do not be alarmed if you see staff wearing face masks…this is purely precautionary
