Shawston are Covid Secure

Ever since the start of the coronavirus outbreak Shawston’s focus has been on maintaining a safe Shawston and supporting our customers.  This has meant protecting jobs, protecting the health and safety of our Shawston colleagues, and protecting the businesses financial integrity.  Implementing Covid-Secure operating procedures allowed us to continue delivering unrivalled levels of customer service during this period, albeit from a reduced branch network and with a significantly reduced workforce.
Prior to this crisis we spent many years building a sustainable business with a strong balance sheet, an empowered employee ownership culture and a leadership team that is the envy of our competitors.
Our hard work in creating a ‘sustainable Shawston’ has given us the ability to make strategic investments in purchasing additional stock during the coronavirus crisis which has certainly been unique within our sector.  This has allowed us to consistently satisfy our customers’ needs throughout the downturn and it will allow us to continue fulfilling their needs as the economy moves forward towards a “new normal”.
Our business has 110 committed co-owner employees who continue to show true Shawston soul and spirit, even more so during a crisis. We are committed to creating a safe Shawston for all.

PPE & Equipment
PPE has been given to all colleagues where required. In our offices we have put personal shields in place where it is likely foot traffic might be higher than normal and additional protection is required.
