Our favourite stores like River Island and Next are delivering again after brief closure

A couple of weeks ago some of our favourite fashion brands were forced to close their websites or halt deliveries because they needed to reassess how they operated because of Covid-19.

With the need for social distancing, some companies felt they needed to make sure their warehouses had proper precautions and systems in place to protect their workers.

  • ASOS are pausing next day premier delivery because of Covid-19

Lots of fashion brands have also taken away next day delivery options as this adds added pressure and could mean a lack of social distancing at work as they would require more people in the warehouse at any one time.

But we were super pleased to see that several brands have now taken the steps they needed to and reopened their online hubs.

Yesterday River Island announced to fans that they were back delivering.

While the brand had always kept on taking orders they hadn't been sure when things could be sent out again.

Yesterday the brand said in a statement that they were "Getting back to what we do best.

"We’ve been busy putting new systems and safety measures in place at our warehouse," they said.

  • These are all the brands now offering 90 days return policies

"This new set-up has been trialled and we’re happy with how it’s working and, more importantly, so are our teams.

"So, we’re pleased to say that we are now beginning to despatch orders to the UK and Ireland.

"We do expect some delays while we work things out and continue running vital process checks.

We’ll let you know as soon as your order has been despatched, but it should be within the next 14 days , in the meantime you can always check our FAQs for the latest updates."

Other brands that have also come back online include, Schuh and Next.

So there are plenty of opportunities to get your fashion fix.

Next are taking a limited number of orders each day to protect workers as they are limiting the number of staff working in the warehouse at any one time for social distancing.

When they hit that number of orders for the day, they pause taking anymore until the following day, smart!
