COVID-19 Update

COVID-19 Update
12th May 2020 Grace King

We hope you are surviving lock down as well as can be expected, it certainly is tough times for everyone.

We just wanted to take a moment to update you on the situation at MR. Barbers.

July 4th at the earliest

Following the governments guidelines, the earliest we will be able to re-open is July 4th as part of the Phase 3 release. This date will be prone to slippage though if the infection rate goes back up.

We are totally behind the governments decisions and will be keeping our door closed until they say we can do differently. This is to protect our barbers, who have been heroic in staying at home and following the governments guidelines over the last 2 months, and to protect our clients from unnecessary risk.

We Are Ready

We are ready to open our doors safely to our customers again once we are told we can do so.

We have:

  • Fully sanitised all of our shops.
  • Bought the necessary PPE
  • Developed a ‘COVID 19 Best Practice Policy’ to ensure everyone is following hygienic working practices that will keep everyone safe
  • Initiated a move to a 100% appointment base system to ensure social distances measures can be maintained and there is enough time between cuts to follow the appropriate sanitisation procedures

Everything is in place, everything is ready, we cannot wait to get back cutting hair, to get back to seeing our clients, to see our friends, but we will NOT being doing that until the Government tells us it is safe to do so.

Be patient

We have no doubt there will be barbershops that reopen this month and barbers that will be offering home haircuts. This goes against everything the government is trying to do to help us all get through this pandemic and it goes against everything we believe in at MR. Barbers. The safety of our barbers and our clients comes first.

We know it is hard to live without getting your hair cut professionally, but we urge you please to hold on that bit longer. We will be open in the not too distant future and then you can come back to our shops and get your hair cut in a safe, virus free, way.

100% Bookings – Download the App

When we do open our doors again, for the safety of our barbers and our clients we will be operating a 100% appointment only system. Take this opportunity to download the MR. Barbers App and get registered. Those who have registered will be the first to be told when we will be opening the booking system and will be the first to get the opportunity to book in with our barbers.

The App is available on Apple and Android in the App store, just search for ‘MR. Barbers’.

Stay Safe

The hard work has been done now, the country will gradually open up again over the coming weeks and months. All our lives can start to move back to some form of normality. Continue to stay safe, look after your loved ones and we will hopefully see you all in July when we reopen

Kind Regards

The  MR. Barbers Team
