What have Dunelm said?

A spokesman from the chain said: "Over the last few weeks we’ve worked hard to carefully reintroduce home delivery.

"We took the necessary time to review how we work and how we needed to change, and added in new precautionary measures to make sure every step of the process is safe for all of our colleagues.

"We’re confident that we’ve made the right choices, and we’re pleased to say that now we are able to offer almost our full range.

"After taking the time to work out a safe solution, we have re-introduced our two-person delivery service, for furniture and larger items.

"For the safety of you and our colleagues these deliveries are completely contact-free, so we will place your order on your doorstep and confirm delivery verbally instead of taking a signature. 

"We have looked extensively into the way we work, and reviewed our processes to make our Click & Collect service completely contact-free and safe for our colleagues and customers.

"The Government has been supportive of Click & Collect services as long as they are doing their part to protect the health and wellbeing of the country.

"We're happy to say that we are carefully rolling out two new ways to use Click & Collect, as well as reopening 39 stores as part of a careful and gradual process.

"Stores are reopening with a few changes to the way we work to ensure everyone is able to shop safely with social distancing and hygiene measures in place. 

"We really appreciate your support and understanding at this time, and we will continue to respond as the situation develops and share any further changes with you."
