Dear Parents/ Carers,
We have received information from our uniform supplier Baru with regard to the supply of uniforms during lockdown. The letter is detailed blow.
Letter from Baru
I would like to thank you for using Baru as your supplier for school uniforms. Unfortunately, it does not look likely that we will be able to have our normal pop-up uniform shops in the schools this year. I am sending this email to update you on the measures we are taking in order to allow the safe purchase and measure of uniforms.
The Scottish government has advised that schools will potentially reopen in August (although the actual format has not been decided yet). Since lockdown started on 23 March, we have been working hard on planning on the best methods to facilitate uniform purchases this year.
We are aware that the summer period gets very busy in our stores. We have put some measures in place to allow us to safely re-open with an expected date of 1 June 2020:
• Parents can order your school online or by phone (if the school is not listed online yet) Delivery to home is available as is free collection in store (appointment required).
• Parents who need measured or to try on the uniforms will need to book an appointment to come to the store. (we will not let customers in without an appointment)
• Up to 4 families (depending on the size of the store) will be allowed in the store at any one time and each family will be served by the same assistant.
• PPE is a requirement and we will have masks and gloves available along with hand sanitiser and temperature checks on entry to the store.
The appointments system is all online and parents can book and amend appointments as required. If you are booking a purchase or measure appointment, there is a £10 deposit which is redeemable against any purchase or refunded if no purchase is made (this is to make sure people turn up on the date and time booked). We are putting these measures in place to keep the public and our staff as safe as possible against the spread of covid-19.
More information is on our website ([ http://www.kitmykid.co.uk ]www.kitmykid.co.uk). The link to book appointments is also available on the website.
I would be grateful if you could please put this communication out to your parents to let them know as we have had many queries from parents unsure of how to buy uniforms this year. If I can help any further or if you have any questions then please call the store on 0141 777 8528 and I can help.
