All Frade Stores are now open for business.
Please note that we have limited the number of customers in our stores to six people at any one given time and we are still observing one way systems and the 2 metre ruling.
We have hand sanitizers and face masks at the entrance to all our stores, we also respectfully ask that visitors observe the government guidelines on the use of masks.
Where are masks compulsory?
Whilst face masks have already been made compulsory on public transport, they will be required in:
- Shops - and shopping centres

The government guidelines say, 'you should also wear a face covering in other enclosed public spaces where social distancing isn’t possible and where you will come into contact with people you do not normally meet'.
Who is exempt from wearing a face mask?
According to the official Government guidance, the below groups are not required to wear a mask:
- A child under the age of 11

- If you are on board public transport but remain in your own vehicle, such as a car ferry.
Other legitimate exemptions listed include those with a disability or a physical or mental illness, and anyone travelling with a deaf person who relies on lip reading to communicate.
Wearers are also permitted to remove them if it is necessary to avoid harm or injury, as well as to eat or drink if required, to take medication, or if a police officer or other official requests you to do so. Customers in shops will also be allowed to remove them if they are required to present identification for purchasing alcohol and other age-restricted products.
