“Don’t worry, we are not going anywhere”.

Brown Thomas and Arnotts have suspended online trading in response to the latest government measures to stop the spread of Covid-19.

The retailers have notified customers that they have suspended their online offerings until a time when it is safe to start again.

The companies explained they will be in touch with customers who are waiting on orders in the coming days.

“We are happy as we know it is the right thing to do and that we will be back sending out the things you love when it is safe to do so,” Arnotts said in an e-mail to customers.

“If you have already placed an order with us, we will be in touch to let you know what’s happening in the next day or two,” both retailers, controlled by the Hilary and Galen Weston owned Selfridges Group, said.

“Don’t worry, we are not going anywhere,” Brown Thomas added in a notice on its website.
