Bing Bong......."This is an important annoucement for all customers wishing to visit Harburn Hobbies model shop. You can once again make tracks to 67 Elm Row from the 29th of June. Thank you for waiting!"

Harburn Hobbies model shop at 67 Elm Row in Edinburgh are pleased to announce that we will be open again from Monday 29th June, but please note that things will have changed in order to keep both you, our valued customers and our staff, as safe as possible.

Revised opening times: Monday to Saturday 10am-4pm.

For the time being to conform with social distancing, only a few customers will be allowed in the shop at any one time. A one way system will be in operation in the shop, with floor markings at appropriate intervals. There will be a hand sanitising station and disposable gloves for customers to put on should they wish to handle any products.

We will be continuously cleaning door handles, credit card machine key pad, counter tops etc. and we will be wearing face coverings - we recommend the use of face coverings for customers too, regardless of legislation. At our till point there will be a clear acrylic sneeze/cough guard. We will be encouraging contactless payments for up to £45. For higher amounts, the PDQ key pad will be cleaned before and after its use.

It would help immensely if you prepare in advance, a list of items you require. This could also be phoned or emailed to save time and ease pressure. (0131-556 3233. email: sales@harburns.uk)

Please take a look at our new look website, it has been greatly expanded! (www.harburns.uk)

As always, we are happy to send items by mail order. Please use the webshop or phone your order to us with your credit/debit card details.

We do hope we can give our usual pleasant Harburn Hobbies shopping experience to you, our customers, but please bear with us during these difficult times and realise that in order to make it fair for everyone, a time limitation in the shop will be necessary.

Best wishes,

The Harburn Hobbies Team.
