Visit our West Street & Gloucester Road stores for affordable paint!
SOFA Project has now reopened and we're very glad to see you again! We know that the last few months haven't been easy.
We want to reassure you that we’re doing everything we can to keep you safe in our stores on Old Market and Gloucester Road.
Our opening hours have altered slightly - we're now closing 30 minutes early each day for rigourous cleaning, so 4.30pm at Old Market, 5pm at Gloucester Road; we’ve installed protective screens in both shops and have provided PPE such as masks, visors, gloves & hand sanitiser to our staff, as well as providing sanitiser at both shop entrances & exits for you to use. We're also limiting customers to 4 at a time in our Gloucester Road store, and are encouraging payment by card rather than cash whenever possible.
We’ve introduced new procedures as we’ve restarted collections & deliveries: social distancing protocols are in place, our drivers are wearing PPE at all times & they won’t ask you to sign any paperwork.
From Friday 24th July we're asking you to follow Government guidelines with regards to wearing face coverings in our shops. All customers, apart from children under 11 & those who have a reasonable cause, such as a health condition, disability, physical or mental impairment should wear a face covering, scarf or other covering. Not all exemptions are visible so please be understanding of other shoppers.
We have also introduced that our staff in our shops are also wearing face coverings, these will be worn when they are in areas where social distancing isn't possible or they aren't behind screens, such as when they're helping you with selecting an item.
For now, we have also decided to remove clothing for sale but the upside of this is that we now have a brilliantly stylish new paint showroom in our Old Market shop for you to browse in.
We're currently unable to take in donations of large items of furniture at our stores due to quarantine requirements, so if you would like to donate to us please use the online form on our website and we'll be in touch as quickly as we can to arrange things.
Thank you for all your continued support for SOFA Project.
The SOFA Project is part of a nationwide paint reuse network, Community RePaint, that aims to collect and redistribute the huge amount of leftover paint.
