We’re partnering with 100s of creative people and businesses to bring you 1000s of perfect products for you and your family (even your four legged friends!)… in just one place.
With situations ever-changing and varying restrictions being put in place across the country, we’re having to temporarily close some of our stores (it’s not a goodbye, it’s a see you soon!) While we hope that it won’t be for long, your safety matters to us most.
Any store closures are to follow the most recent Government guidance, so make sure you keep an eye out for updates on which of our stores are closing and when.
Those of our stores that remain open have full safety measures in place including regular cleaning, hand sanitising stations and a reduced number of people in store.
Our Kildare & Kenmare Outlet stores will be temporarily closed from Thursday 22nd Oct. All of our Welsh stores (Abersoch, Bridgend Outlet, Cardiff, Carmarthen, Monmouth, Mumbles, Tenby & St Davids) will be temporarily closed from Saturday 24th Oct. You’ll be the first to know when we can safely reopen these stores.
Our safety measures continue to give everyone peace of mind while shopping in our stores. All of our open stores have the below measures in place…
Customers in store
We are restricting the number of customers coming through the doors at any one time so everyone can have their space while shopping.
In line with guidelines around face coverings, we’re asking that you please wear one at all times while in our store.
While we can now get a little closer (up to 1+ metres), we’re keeping the 2 metre distance in our stores for ultimate peace of mind.
Hand Sanitising Stations
We have introduced hand sanitising stations around the store for everyone to use when entering and/or leaving. We’ve also put them in our staff areas.
We’ve introduced additional daily cleaning measures including the regular sanitising of high contact areas such as clothing rails and door handles, so that nothing is missed.
Our fitting rooms will be closed for the time being, but hopefully we'll be able to open them again soon!
Reduced Till Operations
We have added protective screens to our till areas and in our larger stores we’ve reduced the number of operating tills too. Please still chat and smile with us though – we all need it!
When you’re ready to pay, please do so with contactless or card when possible to help us reduce the contact that comes with cash.

Making a Return
We are now accepting web returns in-store. When returns in-store are received we hold these for a 72-hour quarantine period before they re-join the rails on our shop floor.
Don’t forget we’ve extended our returns policy! Please visit our Returns Page for more information.
Click & Collect
We’re resuming our Click and Collect services in most of our open stores. So, if you want to browse for your items online and collect them in store, we’d love to see you!
If Click and Collect is available at your local store, it will show in the list of participating stores once you’ve searched your postcode in checkout. When you come to collect your items, please follow the instructions on our Click and Collect signage that will be prominently placed around the store.
We’ve come up with some tips that we hope will make your shopping experience safer and easier.
Timing is Everything
You’ve probably got pretty good at predicting the best time to shop, so if you can, try and visit our stores when things are a little quieter – that’s likely to be first thing in the morning and late afternoon.
However, you can always give your local store a call, they will be more than happy to advise on the best time of day to come along.
You can find all store numbers and new opening times on our Store Finder page.
We don’t want to take the fun out of browsing, but if you want to minimise your time in our store then why not spend a little time on our website first?
You can get an idea of the items we have in at the moment and come with a list (or pictures if you’re really organised) of the styles that might take your fancy.
We’re All in This Together
We understand our stores may be running a little slower than usual, so please be patient with us. We’re all navigating this together and doing the best we can to deliver our usual customer service while protecting everyone’s health and wellbeing.
Our teams have settled into their ‘new normal’ and whilst we’re all missing chats around the kettle (and the biscuits!) we’re in regular contact with all of our teams, ensuring they’re keeping safe during this difficult time and of course, in typical Joules fashion, we’re trying to add a little fun where we can to keep everyone’s spirits high.
We know that thinking about returning products right now can be quite stressful, so we’ve extended our returns policy for you.
Any Joules item purchased from 1st September 2020 will qualify for an extended returns period of 180 days. Our standard returns policy rules still apply, but we hope this will make life a little bit easier.
Our extended returns period covers all Joules products (including those purchased online and in store). Friends of Joules products however are excluded from this extension. You can read more about returns in our FAQs below or here.
Our customer service team are working from home so unfortunately our call centre phone lines are currently closed. However, we have a small but dedicated team dealing with all of your enquiries via email at firstname.lastname@example.org. We’ll try and respond as quick as we can but please bear with us as we have severely reduced staffing levels.

Of course! Our delivery services are still operating but please note if you’ve selected UK standard delivery your order may take slightly longer than usual. Please expect it to be delivered within working days, due to the current circumstances and the measures we have put in place to safeguard our staff. Our next day, Saturday and CollectPlus delivery services are also available. Should anything else change regarding our delivery services, we will ensure this page is updated with the latest service updates.
To safeguard their employees, our distribution centre operator, has dramatically reduced staffing levels to enable them to implement strict social distancing measures and ensure that meticulous hygiene and cleanliness rules are followed. This means we’re able to work with our distribution partner to continue to support our customers who need us, whilst also protecting their teams. It does however come at a cost to our usual service levels, but the Joules community is our number one priority.
As a result, for UK standard delivery, your parcel will now be delivered within working days from the time you placed the order. We’re sorry for any inconvenience this may cause, but we hope you can appreciate that this was a necessary decision to ensure the safety of ours and our partner’s employees.
For items purchased between 1st September 2020 and 4th March 2021, our returns period is extended to 180 days (this excludes Friends of Joules items).
For items purchased between 1st February 2020 and 31st August 2020 our returns period is extended to 365 days (this excludes Friends of Joules items).

We’re doing our best to navigate these extraordinary times and we continue to be led by UK Government and Public Health England advice. The current UK Government mandate does not extend to the closure of supply chain and logistics businesses.
We continue to prioritise the health and wellbeing of our employees and those of our partners, whilst also ensuring that we remain available to those customers who need us. We’re working incredibly closely with our warehouse operator, to ensure they are following all appropriate guidelines and staying safe.
Appropriate measures have been put into place in the distribution centre to safeguard the workforce, including a reduction of staffing levels to allow for social distancing and meticulous hygiene and cleanliness measures. Additionally, we are liaising with our delivery partners to ensure the continued safe and secure carriage of goods to our customers. Should this position change in the near future we will of course let you know.
We’re continuing to follow government guidance, and this may mean some of our stores having to close at differing times. Please be sure to check our store finder page for the latest details before travelling.
Yes, we’re still able to go ahead with our Big Sales and you can find the full list of upcoming dates here. To ensure everyone’s safety, you’ll need to pre-book a slot so that we can monitor the number of people shopping at once. We’ve also added safety measures inside the venues such as hand-sanitising stations, reduced contact at tills and social distancing reminders
With local restrictions ever-changing, these events are of course subject to change. We’re strictly following Government guidelines and will let you know if anything changes regarding any of the upcoming events
