Business Update: COVID-19
26th March 2020
Further to our operations update announcement on 25th March, we have continued to monitor developments and have reviewed our position in respect of trading operations going forward.
JB Kind has a 150-year history and an excellent reputation as an employer in the local area. During our time in business, the Company has encountered and survived many challenges, whilst always ensuring the safety and wellbeing of its staff and customers. The current situation we all find ourselves in is another that we will overcome with the same duty of care for our staff, customers and the community. We have therefore taken the very difficult decision to temporarily suspend operations at 5 pm on Friday 27th March. All deliveries will cease from this point until further notice and will be subject to further Government announcements and guidance.
This decision has been made after due consideration to all concerned in the business. These unprecedented circumstances call for some very difficult decisions to be made. We will adhere to the clear restrictions the Government has put in place on the cessation of trading for non-essential goods to protect our staff, our families, our communities and the future of the business.
The JB Kind team would like to thank you for your continued support and apologise for any inconvenience our decision may cause, but we look forward to resuming normal service as soon as possible and when appropriate to do so. We don’t know exactly when this will be so please keep updated via our website and social media platforms.
Finally, please continue to look after each other, your families and your community.Download brochure
