Latest Update

25/03/2022 - We are currently operating normally with no delays. All delivery and opening schedules have returned to normal. Our status is AMBER to reflect current restrictions and our teammates operating with a heightened level of awareness.

We still recommend that where possible customers minimise the risk to themselves and our teammates by using our website and next day delivery services. Our Customer service phone lines and live chat continue operating normally with extended opening hours from 9:00am until 7:30pm. Please see our opening times for the latest information


The safety and welfare of our teammates is out top priority, however we remain fully operational. We have two full time healthcare workers ensuring we are following best practice guidelines to mitigate against Covid-19 whilst monitoring government guidelines daily.
All teammates have a transparent workplace policy. It is voluntary for them to work at a rate that they feel is fair.

Scan Store
The Scan retail store remains open to the public for browsing and purchasing. This will be reviewed according with the most up to date government guidelines over the coming weeks. Opening times can be found here(link). We ask that you check-in on arrival, wear a suitable face mask and observe social distancing rules to help protect other customers and our teammates.

Q collect
Our popular Qcollect service is fully available with customers able to enter the store and proceed to the collections desk. We ask that customers check-in on arrival, wear a suitable face mask and observe social distancing rules to help protect other customers and our teammates. Customers should not travel to the Scan store until they have received the email stating that their order is ready. We cannot guarantee a same day collection on Qcollect orders.

Technical fault
If you find you have a technical fault with a product you have purchased or need technical advice, please contact our Returns team directly on 01204 474747 or log a query HERE and we will be able to assist. Please DO NOT take your item to our Bolton store as it is closed.

Ship to Shop service
DPD, our parcel-shipping partner, is now offering the Ship to Shop service, where parcels are delivered to local shops instead of the customer's home address.

Non UK shipments
Unfortunately we are currently unable to offer non UK shipments. We are working closely with our courier services to bring this back online but expect this to be in the new year. We thank you for your continued patience.

We are facing challenging times along with chaos, anxiety and uncertainty effecting everyone. Daily life feels like a Sci Fi plot, but in reality there are many things we are doing to mitigate the effects of COVID 19.

In a word we are being Agile in a crazy scenario.

Key Focus areas :-


Teammates and customers are our priority.

We have adjusted our processes and working patterns to minimise the spread of COVID 19 and balancing the service levels offered to customers.

We are prioritising safe working and support and reviewing this several times a day.

Scan has a company wide Wellness programme that is uncommon, but so essential in such times to keep moral high.

Advice is available to all teammates from healthy living, exercise and diet to providing a full range of psychological services to assist through this uncertainty and its effects on family and friends.


We will work to best practice guidelines and be transparent on our operations via a traffic light status put on the web page showing the latest updates on how COVID-19 is affecting Scan's ability to operate.

Supply Chain

All of Scan's core supply partners are committed to help mitigate the supply chain disruptions. We will have daily updates on supply and try our best to ensure stock outs are kept to a bare minimum.


Getting the above areas right, we will do all we can to keep our service standards as high as possible to our loyal customers.

We appreciate your custom, loyalty, support and patience.
A massive thank you,

Team Scan
