2 Pro Shops and shooting ranges

COVID - 19 UPDATE 15 July June 2020
Don't forget the online shop is 24/7 with Click and Collect during opening hours.

Changes from 13 July 2020 

1) Shops are open

It’s not quite going to be life as we knew it before the lock down, so we will expect our customers and staff to follow some simple restrictions to keep us all as safe as possible.

2)  Appointments are not required for most visits

Appointments only required for booking lessons (From 25th July - provisional date) for everything else we will try our best to get it sorted on the day.

3) To book Appointments

Rettendon call 01245400686 - Monday to Saturday between 11am and 3pm

Raydon call 07940 521266 - Monday to Saturday

4) Ideally Come alone as space is tight.

We know how exciting it can be buying new equipment especially if it is your first bow, in better times it was an occasion shared with others. This will now not be possible and we can only have the person who the equipment is for in the shop, the exception will be children and vulnerable adults that can have one guardian with them.

5) Please keep 2 meters apart

Social distancing of 2m is a must at all times.

6) PPE

Staff will be wearing face masks and visors.

Hand Gel will be readily available.

We encourage all visitors to wear a face covering but they will be mandatory from 24/7/20

7) If you are unwell

If you have any Covid symptoms or just feel unwell, please rearrange your visit for a more suitable time.

8) When you arrive

Please wait outside so we can manage numbers in the shop.

9) Testing equipment

We will not be able to operate as we have done in the past and the trying of equipment will be severely restricted. Customers are also asked not to touch any goods on display or fixtures and fittings.

10) Don’t hang around

Again, unlike in the past please spend as little time in the shop as possible.

11) Shooting Ranges

The Shooting Range will be closed only being used for trying certain equipment. We hope to re open on the 25th July on an hourly appointment basis (£5.00 per hour/person).

12) Click and collect and online sales

Ideally until things settle down we encourage people to continue using our online shop and if you prefer to pick the item(s) up using our click and collect service. Order the item(s) online and select to collect. If an item required is not listed online we can most probably source it for you so please give us a call. When the item is ready we will contact you, please note that collections may not be the same day, so ideally a day time mobile number would be helpful.

13) Repairs

All repairs, even minor ones may require you to leave your item with us.

If a repair requires you to be present to check the solution is right – i.e. resetting a peep twist then you will have to book an appointment.

13) Our custom made strings and cables

We will start making custom strings and cables again (From July), but this does require a considerable amount of hand contact and it is not possible to sanitise the items so again please be aware before using. The turnaround for compound strings and cables will be around 14 days from the time of dropping off your bow to us. Recurve strings should be ordered online or over the phone and either posted out or collected.

14) Tea and coffee

All tea and coffee making facilities are suspended.

15) Toilets

The farms’ toilet facilities are open - used at your discretion 

Let’s all give it a go

"We’re so glad to be opening again. It’s not quite going to be ‘business as usual’ but it’ll be the best we can do for the time being. Thank you for bearing with us. We hope to see you soon."

Please note: Automatic opening gates at Rettendon: Drive up to gates and they will open away from you (during opening hours) turn right and please park in the car park and walk (a short walk) round to the shop. It is important that we keep the roads clear we are on a working farm and trading estate and there are many large vehicles and arctic lorries keen not to damage their paintwork, also please do not park in front of emergency exits or areas marked "no parking".
