Good morning.

Just a little update on things are going here at HQ.

We are open today and tomorrow and you can just walk in with no need to book. We have been operating this ( normal) policy now for three weeks and firstly can i just thank everyone who has been in and made the system of 4 people at a time, masks and hand cleaning work without any difficulties or issues. There is nothing worse than having to remember all these "rules" and me having to ask of them. Secondly I'm amazed at the footfall we have had and the support you have given in these times.

It's been difficult for everyone since march and there are still many hurdles to overcome for us all in the coming months. Myself included has toyed with how the future will be, been in some difficult places mentally but thankfully being out in the open air, visited some lovely places and got into better physical health has re-invigorated a desire. Its no doubt going to be challenging through autumn and winter to come.

We will be interacting more on the page in the coming weeks, back to regular pictures of new incomings of which we have seen alot coming in ( Inc some hard to find 90s Prince items) and around 20 emails yesterday that we will be looking into in the coming weeks.
Made a start on the big soul collection, but over 700 albums and 600+ 7" takes some time to process.

Again just a thank you to everyone for the support and kind words. Enjoy the weekend ☺️

Lots to wade through that we picked up last week and will be cleaning and sorting it all next week then squeezing it in somewhere on our already bulging HQ.

Hello

Hope everyone is keeping well.

I would like to update everyone on how we will be proceeding with the future here at Minster Records.

I’ve had a few days now to take in and chew the fat over the guidelines that have been set out for small businesses to reopen at a possible June 15th date. I have decided that we will be “reopening” from July but it will only be as an appointment-only basis and the days we will be holding these will be Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays weekly. This will run until the end of August when I will assess how things are and whatever the guidelines are at that point.

This decision isn’t an easy one but there are difficulties and reasons why we can’t just open up as normal, firstly I will explain the difficulties. We are a tactile shop in which customers browse, that means you just don’t walk in for a specific item you tend to touch albums in all manner of sections. One of the government’s guidelines set out is that customers will be advised to only touch what they intend to buy, as you can imagine this is really difficult for us to adhere to. Anything touched then rejected, or returned is suggested to be placed away for up to 72hrs until returning to the display. Taking hundreds of items out after each customer isn’t practical.

We have a new business opening next door and a residential building at the other side so any potential queuing would affect these premises and as we are situated in a very narrow path, any queue would mean other pedestrians having to step on the road to get by which wouldn’t be safe.

So how the appointment basis will work.

Each Friday, Saturday and Sunday we will have allocated time slots of 30 minutes that will start from 9 am and the last one being at 4pm. In between appointments, I will leave a further 30 minutes in order to clean and disinfect surfaces etc. We will provide Vinyl gloves that each customer must wear or if these cause any irritating or medical issues then you can use the hand sanitizer provided. A facial covering or mask will be advised if you have one. You will be asked in that if you have any symptoms that you avoid booking a slot and follow the government guidelines.

This will run until August and then I will take stock of how it’s going and how things are around the advice at that time. If this “new normal” lasts for a substantial amount of time further into the year and so on, then the whole reason why I opened a shop and have strived to provide a community hub will be compromised. I thrive on the fact people could just walk in off the street, browse chat and so on and see the shop full of people on a daily basis gave me a sense of pride. But if that can’t happen for many months then I don’t see that being enjoyable to you or to me. We have been working online since we closed, and thank you to all that have supported me on that. That will continue as and when new stock arrives, but it’s maybe the way ahead and I have until the next lease renewal clause to consider that being so.

If you have any question or would like to book an appointment, contact information can be found below.

I will be updating Facebook should anything change.

Stay safe, stay well.
