Our business and supply chain have undertaken a number of reviews around Brexit and we have attempted to prepare for possible scenarios which may or may not happen over the coming weeks/months.
If we have a ‘no deal’ Brexit then we can expect delays across the supply chain, but we cannot judge government preparedness to gauge the scale and length of those delays. With a deal or a delay we would expect a much more stable trading environment in January 2021. We are, as you’d expect in close discussions with suppliers with regard to stock in the supply chain throughout these final negotiations.
Behind the scenes, we have taken the neccessary steps to ensure there is a sufficient supply of our stocked ‘top selling’ and ‘fast moving’ lines. However, where items are sourced as “specials” this may be impacted by third party preperations that are outside of our control – many of these are sourced from within the UK, but rely on an international supply chain. If such items are critical to your operation, please refer to the information below.
