Beautiful Summer Magazine & Your Scotsdales Voucher Booklets –
July Update

Due to the huge impact on the manufacture and supply chains by Covid-19, we were unable to honour any of the product offers or vouchers advertised in our Beautiful Summer magazine valid for the month of June. The huge impact on our growers during the Covid-19 lock down, the plants which were chosen specially to feature in our Beautiful Summer Magazine are either in extremely short supply or are simply unavailable.

Please be aware that the magazine was created in March this year to make the strict print deadline. We were aware of the severity of Covid-19, but we could not foresee the full extent it would have and will likely continue to have for a period of time on the supply chain and Scotsdales as a whole.

We thank the many who understood the issues around not being able to honour the vouchers in June.

July Vouchers

Our buying team along with our suppliers have worked incredibly hard on the July voucher products and we are delighted to say that we are now in a position to honour these. We have acquired good numbers of stock however this is by no means limitless. We will advise customers as soon as we know that stock is sold out, using all channels available.

For those who are part of our Your Scotsdales loyalty scheme, we will endeavour to bring back the voucher booklets once we feel sure we can fulfil the stock quantities needed.

Pet lovers will marvel at the wonderful pet section too – whatever pet you have, we’re pretty sure we’ve got something they’ll love or that you need for them. Don’t forget to bring your four legged friend(s) too as they’re very welcome if on a lead.

Sunflower Cafe Statement – July 2020

We have had a number of enquiries asking if our Sunflower Cafes will be reopening on the 4th July. We thank you for your interest and we appreciate how keen you all are to enjoy a freshly cooked meal, cream tea and of course, the cakes however we will not be reopening our Sunflower Cafes for a short time yet. We will of course continue to focus on the safety measures put in place throughout the stores and keeping the shopping experience at the excellent standards you would expect.

Rest assured that we will notify you all via our website, social media platforms and in-store of the proposed dates for re-opening just as soon as we are confident that we can do so.

Until then, you will find selected food hall products in the cafes, so that picking up a delicious treat to enjoy at home is still a possibility.
