Selco Milton Keynes reopens doors after coronavirus closure

    The Milton Keynes branch of a national builders’ merchant has reopened its doors for the first time in more than two months.

    Selco Builders Warehouse’s Milton Keynes branch, based on Denbigh Road, closed due to the coronavirus outbreak on Monday, March 23.

    Tradespeople were given the chance to complete online orders for collections and deliveries from the branch a month ago.

    It has now been decided to allow customers into the branch for walk-in transactions, with strict social distancing guidelines in operation. 

    Chief executive Howard Luft said: “The health and safety of our customers and colleagues has been our No 1 priority throughout and we have taken a measured and responsible approach to reopening.

    “We have had a few weeks where customers could either use Click & Collect or Click & Deliver at Milton Keynes and now we are in a position to continue offering those services but also open up the branch for customers to browse and pick up their products and materials in person.

    “It’s an extremely difficult period for the entire country but we are delighted to be well through the process of opening the doors to our 68 branches across the UK, while adhering to the government guidelines at all times.”

    Social distancing measures inside branches will include a 2m gap being maintained between all individuals, no more than two customers being allowed to enter the branch together, a limit to the total number of customers allowed in a branch at any one time and protective safety screens around the trade counter and tills.

    There will be clear markings around the branch to guide people on social distancing regulations.

    Click & Collect – from car parks only – and Click & Deliver orders will still continue and the Milton Keynes branch will be open from 6.30am-5pm, Monday to Friday and 7am-3pm on a Saturday.
