January Fog 2021 The Potato Shop

The Potato Shop Update 05.01.21

In COVID-19 Updates by Sam

With the announcement of another Lockdown across the UK we’d like to let you know that our services will remain unchanged. The way things will be operated is going to be slightly different, with a rota of staff working from home where possible to bring down the number of people present and continued safe social distancing practices in place for those who have to attend the workplace. However, we would like to assure you that we do not anticipate any disruption to our normal service to you. Please find details of this outlined below:

Honesty Stall

Our Honesty Stall in Tenterden will continue to operate as normal with potatoes and firewood stocked outside. Contactless card payments can be taken during office hours (Mon-Sat, 9am-3pm) and outside of these times envelopes are left by the door for you to place cash payment in and post through our letterbox. During office hours we can also give you access to other products in our range including Strong Stoneground Wholemeal FlourCold Pressed Rapeseed Oil and Wild Game. Please Note: Our busiest periods tend to be from lunchtime through the afternoon, if you would like to avoid these times we recommend visiting in the morning. We would also like to ask that customers do not enter our building – there is a doorbell outside if you wish to get our attention with hand sanitiser next to it for your use.

Online Orders

If you’re self isolating or having to shield please consider our home delivery mail order service. All of our PotatoesCold Pressed Rapeseed Oil and Strong Stoneground Wholemeal Flour are available to order online for delivery to your doorstep. Please find more information on our website: www.thepotatoshop.com.

Local Deliveries

We are also offering a local home delivery service for members of our community who are self-isolating or shielding. If you would like to order any of our products for yourself or a vulnerable family member or neighbour please get in touch by either calling us on 01580 766 866 or emailing potatoshop@morghew.com.

Please Note: Although the weather at this time of year is favourable for potato storage we do not spray them with growth-inhibiting chemicals in store so they will want to grow. They will keep well in a cool, dark and dry place for a few weeks – please don’t buy more than you can eat in this time.

Take care,
